The Short Guide to Criminal Justice provides a comprehensive, yet concise, introduction to the current state of the criminal justice system in the United Kingdom—a subject often subsumed in larger discussions of crime and criminology. Avoiding an overtly legalistic or philosophical approach, Lisa Jayne O’Malley and Sharon Elizabeth Grace offer an accessible entry point for students and researchers across disciplines who seek to better understand a range of key criminal justice issues. Also exploring the experience of criminal justice in relation to inequality, a subject of increasing urgency both in the United Kingdom and internationally, this book serves as a foundation for further investigation and discussion.
