Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Crime and Criminal  JusticeThird Edition!

Crime and Criminal Justice, Third Edition provides accessible and comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the criminal justice system, as well as innovative chapters on victims and criminal justice policy.  Utilizing a format that's designed to increase student engagement and critical thinking, each chapter is followed by two Current Controversy debates that dive into a critical issue in criminal justice. They challenge misconceptions and provide a balanced debate of both the pros and cons of each issue, followed by probing questions to help students wrestle with these timely topics. With contemporary examples that students can easily apply and a broad range of effective learning tools they can utilize, Mallicoat helps students go beyond the surface towards a deeper understanding of the criminal justice system.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
