Quotes and reviews

"This seventh edition of an introductory core text for freshman undergraduates offers an extended focus on theoretical criminology throughout the text. There is new information on terrorism and homeland security, along with updated references and statistics. The look of the text has been enhanced with additional b&w photos in a reader-friendly, two-color layout with ample space for handwritten notes. The text is written in a conversational style at a reading level geared toward the typical college freshman, and focuses on three basic themes: the system-like nature of criminal justice, the conflict between due process and crime control, and the importance of discretion. The first part of the book sets the context for the study of criminal justice, with chapters on theoretical perspectives, the justice process, and crime and crime control. The second part is composed of 10 chapters addressing the justice process (including the juvenile justice system). Learning features include review questions, key terms, and an extensive glossary."--Reference and Research Book News
