Review:


"Occasionally someone comes along with a totally new idea for a book ... Lab, Williams, Holcomb, King, and Buerger hit all of the major topics in order to get uninitiated students up-to-speed in situations where they have not previously studied criminal justice. I like this approach."--Larry Mays, New Mexico State University


"I find this a novel and interesting approach, one that fills a gap in the available literature--how to introduce criminal justice to students whose major is not criminal justice. The book is well written, a reliable and solid contribution ... I strongly endorse it."--Scott Decker, University of Missouri


"The approach is excellent. How have we survived so long without this text? This is an excellent overview for students without a criminal justice background."--Olga Tsoudis, Wayne State University
