Criminal (In)Justice
A Critical Introduction

Second Edition


December 2021 | 440 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Criminal (In)Justice: A Critical Introduction examines the American criminal justice system and the social forces that shape it. Using a conversational voice, the book challenges readers to consider the inequalities in the criminal justice system as well as in the broader society it is designed to protect, then ask, "What can I do to make this better?"

Author Aaron Fichtelberg uses a unique, critical perspective to encourage students to look closer at the intersection of race, class, gender, and inequality in the criminal justice system. Covering each of the foundational areas of the criminal justice system—policing, courts, and corrections—this book takes an in-depth look at the influence of social inequality, making it ideal for instructors who want students to critically assess the American criminal justice system in a very approachable way.

This second edition comes at a time when there is a profound awareness that the criminal justice system reflects deep and systematic inequalities in American society and has been updated to include some of these monumental changes.
