Nelson - Criminal Justice in Canada, Eighth Edition provides students with a comprehensive overview of the criminal justice system and identifies significant issues, crime control policies, and Supreme Court decisions that have and will continue to have a significant impact on our criminal justice system. As with previous editions, the eighth edition has been revised and updated to reflect the changes and rulings that have impacted Canada’s criminal justice system, such as the landmark rulings on physician-assisted suicide and on trial delays. As well, the eighth edition addresses critical and current issues, including Indigenous offenders and the criminal justice system, the use of solitary confinement in corrections, and racial profiling by police. With Criminal Justice in Canada, Eighth Edition, students will gain a better understanding of these and other issues affecting Canada’s criminal justice system.
