Overview

The articles in this reader are divided into eighteen chapters that closely parallel the author's textbook INTRODUCTION TO CRIMINAL JUSTICE. The reader contains thirty-two articles from a wide variety of sources that are intended to initiate a series of discussions. The articles were chosen to expand the awareness of the criminal justice system by exposure to germane "critical thinking" topics.
