This book is a thoroughly up-to-date account of the UK criminal process — its framework, institutions, participants, and practical everyday context. This re-styled edition of the authors' highly successful Introduction to the Criminal Justice Process (first published in 1995) takes account of the large scale changes that have impacted the Criminal Justice System (CJS) over a few short years. It will be of considerable value to anyone seeking to put these changes into perspective. Accessible and well-informed, it can be read on its own as a basic introductory text or enhanced by the 'top down' approach of Waterside Press' The New Ministry of Justice and The New Home Office. The Criminal Justice System looks at all the main tasks of the CJS in England and Wales, from the investigation of crime and the arrest of suspects through court remands and key preliminaries to trial, sentence, and beyond. In a concise and readily understood way, the book sets out the powers, responsibilities, and day-to-day methods and practices of each of the criminal justice services. It covers the role of the police, the Crown Prosecution Service, Criminal Defence Service, judges, magistrates, the National Probation Service, HM Prison Service, the Parole Board, as well as the role of the private, voluntary and non-statutory sectors. The book also ranges from crime prevention strategies to victims and restorative justice, from moves to create enhanced procedures and modern-day rules and standards to the importance of values such as fairness, integrity, decency, ethics, and human rights.

Criminological Research for Beginners is a comprehensive and engaging guide to research methods in Criminology. Written specifically for undergraduate students and novice researchers, this book has been designed as a practical guide to planning, conducting, and reporting research in the subject. By first inviting readers to consider the importance of criminological research, the book places related methodology firmly in the context of students’ broader study of Criminology, before moving on to provide a detailed guide to the practical processes of research. It is common for Criminology undergraduates to feel intimidated at the prospect of conducting their own research, and these students typically struggle to see the relevance of research methods to their own studies. This book speaks directly to the needs of such students, and includes contemporary examples and case studies that bring a topic that is often thought of as dry to life, providing a thorough and accessible practical guide that students can return to at each stage of their research, all the way through to their dissertation. This book covers: an examination of the theoretical, political, and ethical debates in criminological research; a complete guide to planning criminological research, assisting student researchers in identifying their research questions, choosing their research methods, and critiquing the available literature; guidance on the practicalities and processes of collecting data, a discussion of the process of analysing data and writing up research, Including an extensive glossary and an integrated companion website with extra examples, exercises, and videos to further develop students’ understanding, this book is essential reading for any undergraduate on a Criminological Research Methods course, or for anyone in need of practical guidance on any or every of the various stages involved in conducting thorough and effective criminological research.
