Matthew B. Robinson


Justice Blind? Ideals and Realities of American Criminal Justice, 3rd Edition provides a thought-provoking critique of American criminal justice, one aimed at bringing about real-world change in our political and criminal justice agencies. This text is an excellent example of critical criminology for introductory students. The coverage of current issues is great, and Robinson injects the importance of factors such as politics and the media. The text inspires critical thinking in students! Lisa Anne Zilney, Montclair State University Robinson provides a rigorous social commentary regarding social institutions and their roles in the criminal law making and criminal justice systems. For example, the media as a player (rather than a reporter) in American criminal justice is new to many students, and this is a challenge that Robinson invites them to consider, with excellent information along the way. Demetra Pappas, Seton Hall University The books greatest strength is that it is more than just an introductory text. It explains the [criminal justice] system and is realistically critical of it. Gary R. Perlstein, Portland State University I like the authors willingness to challenge the conventional wisdom. Critical criminology is crucial to the advancement of the field. Joan Crowley, New Mexico State University. Justice Blind? Ideals and Realities of American Criminal Justice, 3rd Edition critically examines criminal justice and media processes including the political and ideological nature of law-making, crime, and terrorism. Other topics include: policing, bail and plea bargaining, sentencing, punishment through incarceration and the death penalty, the war on drugs, and that role that race, class, and gender play in criminal justice.Matthew B.
