This book is the most comprehensive book on the market that deals specifically with writing criminal justice papers. It gives specific directions for writing a variety of papers in criminal justice, from introductory to advanced, while also providing instructions on “how to write,” and how to format the paper and cite sources following the American Sociological Association’s and the American Psychological Association’s guidelines.
