The criminal justice system in the United States is best described as a system of related, but not necessarily co-ordinated, agencies. Accountable to different branches of government and having different goals, they may even work to the detriment of each other. Alpert looks at the links between the parts of the system and analyzes their relationships. He warns that criminal justice in America will slow down or stop if the various components do not work in relative harmony.

This reorganized and updated text provides a comprehensive examination of the American judicial system by describing and analyzing political influences on courts' structure, procedures, decision-making processes, and consequences for society. Professor Smith focuses on courts rather than on law because of the recognition that the content of law often depends on the composition of the judiciary, citizens' access to the judicial process, and judicial decision-making procedures. This revealing study of the courts challenges the myths and popular perceptions about law and justice in American society and covers unique topics such as court bureaucracy; subordinates' influences on judges' decisions; and social science approaches to decision making.
