Negotiating Crime: Plea Bargaining, Problem Solving, and Dispute Resolution in the Criminal Context is the first textbook of its kind that covers all of the processes through which criminal cases are resolved in the United States beyond trials. Negotiating Crime brings together criminal procedure, current policy debates, and dispute resolution concepts to examine the practice of criminal law in the 21st century. The first half of the book is devoted to plea bargaining, first covering the basic caselaw, practice, policy concerns, and reform proposals. In addition, this section explains negotiation theory and applies it to the practice of plea bargaining. The second half of the book covers problem solving and therapeutic justice courts, including drug courts and mental health courts; restorative justice; and juvenile justice.
