Praise for the text:

“Fagin writes in an informative manner that permits for fast and vast learning. This book is advanced enough for excellent students but still not too advanced for students who are still learning how to learn. It is the best book on the intro to CJ market in terms of appealability to a broad audience.”
Michael Jordan
Lamar University

“Fagin’s Criminal Justice is a fun, well-researched, comprehensive text that particularly serves students with an interest in applied, pragmatic criminal justice.”
Matt DeLisi
Iowa State University

"I have used his text before (as well as others) and I always return to Fagin. Thank you, Mr. Fagin, for your wonderful work!"
Professor Kimora
John Jay College of Criminal Justice

“The writing is clear, to the point, and students respond quite well to the overall text.”
Tracy Tolbert
