Justice Blind? Ideals and Realities of American Criminal Justice (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Updated in a new 3rd edition, this book is rganized around a "planned change" approach and provides a critical assessment of how well the American criminal justice system achieves its goals. Unlike most other criminal justice books-which cover the traditional topics from the perspective of how "things are supposed to be," this book compares these ideals with the realities of criminal justice today and provides a critical interpretation of the role of race, ethnicity, and gender in criminal justice.
