We set out to create a brief Introductory Criminal Justice book with the following objectives:

  • Make it affordable...$45 net 
  • Create a text today’s student will want to read
  • Integrate powerful media...www.prenhall.com/cji (Criminal Justice Interactive)
  • Clearly and concisely explain key concepts and reinforce throughout
  • Show the link between concepts and current events

We’ve designed a book focused on learning with content accessible for today’s student.  This book focuses on the critical objectives of each chapter and presents them in a way that is clear, visual and instructional.  Every chart, picture, and illustration serves a purpose...help people learn.  While we understand people are often visual learners, we did not want to create a book busy with boxed features and irrelevant pictures.  Instead we focused on the core concepts and relevant and recent real world applications.  We then built a format/design that engages the student, without sacrificing the necessary academic rigor.  The book promotes true learning as opposed to rote memorization and is a source for engaging debates and discussions. This is a perfect resource for a Criminal Justice Student or someone interested in the field of criminal justice.
