About the Author:

Larry Gaines is chair of his department and a longtime, well-known figure in the field, both as an educator and in law enforcement. Highly respected and well-liked in the discipline, he is also a former law enforcement officer whose experience has resulted in a book with powerful "cop appeal."

Review:

"This is an excellent textbook! The boxed features, objectives and chapter summaries support the learning process and active student participation. In addition, the electronic resources and questions for critical analysis represent a new frontier in textbook writing."

"The writing fits well with my needs to bridge the beginning student with the more advanced student. The text is a good fit with our program and my teaching style. The variety of insert material is great--sparks a lot of interest in reading."

"The pedagogical learning aids are invaluable--they play a key role in obtaining student's interest, stimulating a desire to succeed, and assisting student understanding."

"All pertinent topics are covered in appropriate detail and emphasis. I found the visual material to be of excellent quality, very informative, and easily understood."
