Canadian Criminal Justice 4th edition provides a thorough yet concise examination of the Canadian criminal justice system and the five main components of that system: law enforcement, prosecution, the judiciary, corrections and parole. The book is suitable for students in both university and college level programs. One of the text's primary goals is to highlight the key issues surrounding the response to crime and offenders. The 2-colour design ensures this text is appealing and user-friendly to students. This text does not attempt to be a comprehensive introduction to criminal justice; rather it provides the basic building blocks of theory and then provides room for each instructor to expand on those concepts through their lectures and by integrating their own selection of readings and cases.
Curt Griffiths is a prolific and successful author. He is a full time professor in the School of Criminology at Simon Fraser University.
