"Students need to hit the ground running - this chapter (Chapter 3) has a positive blend of material that does just that! The coverage is well-balanced! This chapter serves as a "kick-off" to the remaining components of the system."
"This text is a true leader in the industry! It is updated, current, well organized and thought through!"
"...clearly promotes 'critical understanding' with the Close-Ups, New Directions, Doing Your Part, A Question of Ethics, What Americans Think, and landmark Comparative Perspectives!"
"In terms of organization, the text is well thought through! The chapter selection is state-of-the-art from start to finish!"
"The material is clear, accurate, interesting, on the appropriate level and most important, 'on the cutting edge' of the text's three major themes: 1. Criminal justice involves public policies 2. The concept of social system is an essential tool and 3. American values provide the foundation on which criminal justice is based."
