Justice Without Trial: Law Enforcement in Democratic Society / Edition 4 available in Paperback
Quid Pro Books presents the new Fourth Edition of Justice Without Trial, the edition featuring a light blue or light green cover and adding a new Foreword by Candace McCoy. [NOTE: Versions with a purple, white or gray cover are of much earlier editions, even if this description appears on their product pages.] This is the acclaimed and foundational study of police culture and practice, political accountability, application of and obedience to the rule of law in stops and arrests, and the dilemma of law versus order in free societies-by the renowned sociologist Jerome Skolnick using innovative and influential research techniques in law and criminology. A respected scholar in the early law and society movement, Skolnick interviewed police and criminals, rode extensively with police detectives and attended interrogations, and ultimately saw police conduct and mentality from the inside, before such methodology became popular.
Every student of law and society knows this book: now it is available again with a new Foreword by Dr. McCoy and a new Preface by the author. Fifty years after his innovative research began, the continuity and change of policing and law is seen again, in all its richness and nuance.
