This leading text for courses in Criminology is known for its lucid style, student-oriented approach, and interdisciplinary global perspective. The text comes in two versions - with or without coverage of the criminal justice system. For schools that retain the traditional criminology course, which includes coverage of criminal justice, "Criminology and the Criminal Justice System" is the ideal text. For schools that offer a separate introductory course in criminal justice, "Criminology" is the appropriate text.
