In addition, an introductory essay by the authors to the book as a whole, followed by lengthy introductions to each reading encourage students to see how each article sheds light on an important issue affecting the cj system, and how each article should also be judged on its methodfor getting at "reality." As a result, students learn more deeply and are more engaged by this text/reader for introduction to cj than from conventional (and more expensive) texts.
