The general goal of the book is to inform the reader of the primary people, practices, and terms that are utilized in justice administration.  The author has held several administrative and academic positions in a criminal justice career spanning more than 35 years; thus, this book's 16 chapters contain a palpable real-world flavor not found in most textbooks.
