We set out to create a brief Introductory CJ book with the following objectives…

  • Make it affordable...$45 net
  • Create a text today’s student will want to read
  • Integrate powerful media… (Criminal Justice Interactive)
  • Clearly and concisely explain key concepts and reinforce throughout
  • Show the link between concepts and current events

We’ve designed a text focused on learning with content accessible for today’s student. This text focuses on the critical objectives of each chapter and presents them in a way that is clear, visual and instructional. Every chart, picture, and illustration serves a purpose…help the student learn.

While we understand students are often visual learners, we did not want to create a text busy with boxed features and irrelevant pictures. Instead we focused on the core concepts and relevant and recent real world applications. We then built a format/design that engages the student, without sacrificing the necessary academic rigor. The text promotes true learning as opposed to rote memorization and is a source for engaging debates and discussions in the classroom.
