Overview

An outstanding text for the Introduction to Criminal Justice course. Criminal Justice has become an international field and this text has better international coverage than any other text on the market. Careful attention has been paid to pedagogy so that students learn the material easily; a running glossary appears in the margin of each page as well as quotes from newsworthy professionals. The three types of boxes are real teaching tools. Each box is a two page spread and consists of text, sources and questions along with photos or tables to help students understand the material. This text is heavily referenced. The references alone constitute a suggested readings appendix.
