This new text provides an overview of the origin and development of
the American criminal justice system from the arrival of the first
settlers during the Colonial period into the twenty first century.
Systematically organized, each chapter begins with an overview of
the political, economic, social and cultural forces that shaped
society within each time period. The authors then present a history
of ordinary crime as well as extraordinary high profile criminal
acts. The authors use this discussion of historical context and
crime as a foundation to describe and analyze the development and
impact of police, law, courts, corrections, and juvenile justice.
