Criminology and Criminal Justice System By Dr. N. Maheshwara

Criminology and Criminal Justice System By Dr. N. Maheshwara

The subject of “Criminology” which forms part of the criminal justice system, deals with all aspects of criminal jurisprudence including development and role of schools of criminology, crimes, criminals, principles/ theories of crimes and punishments, prison reforms and victim compensation, etc. Its objective is to reform the people who are susceptible to commit or have already committed any offence(s)/crime(s) and to establish a crime free society. Knowledge of this subject is a qua non for everyone in general and for law enforcement authorities and agencies in particular. The First Edition of this book was published as early as in the year 2013 with a pious hope that it could help and assist the law enforcement agencies, the academicians and others dealing with the subject. Since its First Edition, there have been considerable changes made either by way of amendments, especially in the substantive/procedural criminal laws, such as the Indian Penal Code, 1860n the Criminal Procedure Code, 1973, the Evidence Act, 1872, or by way of introducing new enactments like “Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 and the Rules made thereunder, etc, as the case may be.
