Today’s headlines vividly illustrate the importance of understanding aspects of the criminal justice system too often ignored. While the second edition of Crime and Criminal Justice in American Society includes the most recent statistics on the police, courts, and corrections, its provocative, current examples also spur critical thinking about justice in the United States. The authors offer an alternative interpretation of criminal justice rarely presented in traditional textbooks or by the media. They encourage readers to examine their beliefs about crime, punishment, and the law. Discussions in the chapters about how African Americans, Hispanics, whites, women, juveniles, the rich, and the poor experience crime and the criminal justice system contribute context for understanding different viewpoints. The poor and minorities are the most likely to be caught in the net of criminal justice—but inequities have consequences for everyone. Reflection on various perspectives provides helpful input for assessing attitudes and for becoming actively involved with issues that have significant consequences. Eighteen thoroughly revised chapters present historical backgrounds, theories, and emerging issues. New to the second edition is a chapter on veterans involved in the criminal justice system. Affordable, succinct, and engaging, this textbook presents the key concepts of the criminal justice system at less than half the cost of many competing textbooks.

Keine Macht, kein Recht Spektakulärer hätte Seth Hubbard seinen Tod nicht inszenieren können. Als sein Mitarbeiter ihn eines Morgens aufgehängt an einem Baum findet, ist die Bestürzung im beschaulichen Clanton groß. Niemand hätte mit einem Freitod gerechnet. Hubbards Familie sieht das pragmatischer und ist in erster Linie an der Testamentseröffnung interessiert. Was sie nicht weiß: Kurz vor seinem Tod hat Hubbard sein Testament geändert. Alleinige Erbin ist seine schwarze Haushälterin Lettie Lang. Ein erbitterter Erbstreit beginnt . . . Als der schwer kranke Seth Hubbard seinem Leben ein Ende setzt, ahnt niemand, welche Folgen diese Tat haben wird. Hubbard, ein grimmiger Einzelgänger, blieb im Wesentlichen für sich. Versorgt von einer Haushälterin, hatte er kaum mehr Kontakt zu seiner Familie. Hubbards erwachsene Kinder absolvieren die Trauerfeier für ihren Vater denn auch wie einen Pflichtbesuch, um sich danach möglichst schnell der Testamentseröffnung zu widmen. Die Überraschung könnte kaum größer sein, als sich herausstellt, dass Hubbards Vermögen 24 Millionen Dollar umfasst. Den Löwenanteil spricht Hubbard seiner Haushälterin Lettie Lang zu. Seine Familie indes geht leer aus. In Windeseile fechten Hubbards Kinder das Testament an. Mit allen Mitteln versuchen sie Hubbards Unzurechnungsfähigkeit zu beweisen. Die Rechnung scheint aufzugehen. Bis Jack Brigance, der Anwalt an Lettie Langs Seite, Hubbards verschwundenen Bruder Ancil ausfindig macht, der eine Geschichte zu berichten hat, die einem das Blut in den Adern gefrieren lässt. Plötzlich ergibt Seth Hubbards Testament auf tragische Weise Sinn.
