Summary
    Designed to inspire conversation and critical thinking, Contemporary Issues in Criminal Justice presents students with a carefully selected collection of readings regarding timely and relevant issues within the criminal justice discipline. Readers are challenged to develop informed opinions on individual topics and then take a step back to consider all of the issues addressed to better understand the complex challenges of working within the criminal justice system.

    Over the course of 10 chapters, students read illuminating selections regarding the death penalty, police conduct, the delicate balance of privacy and security, mental illness, gun control, drug policy, cybercrime, and cryptocurrency. Throughout, readers are encouraged not to take sides on a particular issue, but rather to address the challenge with realistic, practical thought and develop strategies for facing these challenges head on.

    Contemporary Issues in Criminal Justice is an engaging and thought-provoking anthology that is well suited for undergraduate and graduate courses in criminal justice.
    The Second Edition will be published Spring 2021.
