very satisfied :) March 16, 2011
I purchased this textbook for a class. It's cheaper than the book they sell at my college. I didn't save a lot, but a few bucks is helpful for a working student like me. It arrived on time and in a very good condition for a used book exactly as described .The textbook was very helpful and the author explains the methods of operation, the effects on society, and how various theories account for criminal behavior. I'm satisfied with the transaction!
