Well written book.  October 3, 2011

I liked this book because the authors used graphic art and simple case study examples in each chapter. The book gave me a solid understanding of criminal justice and how it applies to society as a whole. Most importantly, the books interactive website helped me to prepare for course exams and quizzes.
