  • Samaha presents criminal justice as a decision-making process?the Decision Making Paradigm?that examines the appropriate formal and informal criteria (e.g. seriousness of offense, criminal history of the offender, and the strength of the case) that guide legitimate decision-making, and illegitimate criteria (e.g. race and ethnicity) that infect decision making in the crime control agencies (police, courts, corrections). This approach is a lively and stimulating way to engage students, while providing thorough coverage of the entire field.
