About the Author:

Callie Marie Rennison is a professor and associate dean of faculty affairs at the University of Colorado Denver and teaches a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses including Research Methods, Statistics, Murder in America, Crime and the Media, and Introduction to Criminal Justice. She earned her Ph.D. in 1997 in political science from the University of Houston, University Park. She received her B.S. in psychology, M.A. in sociology, and M.A. in political science from the same institution. Her research focuses on the nature, extent, and consequences of violent victimization with an emphasis on research methodology, quantitative analysis, and measurement, especially in regards to the National Crime Victimization Survey. Substantively, her research examines violence against women, violence against minority groups such as African Americans and Hispanics, crime data, and victim interaction with the criminal justice system. She recently served on a National Academies Committee examining domestic sex trafficking of minors in the United States and was a senior researcher at the Department of Justice′s Bureau of Justice Statistics.

Review:

"Rennison and Dodge should be commended for writing a parsimonious introductory book tailored to the typical undergraduate student.  The authors are able to connect the many components of the criminal justice system by interweaving the same four real life examples throughout the book." (Brandon L. Bang)

"I overall enjoyed reading this text. It was well organized and well written. The updated trend information is something that has been needed in an Introduction to Criminal Justice text for some time." (Jennifer Riggs)

"Very easy to adapt for online courses...Addresses multiple learning styles through multimedia approach" (Danielle McDonald)

"Good comprehensive overview of the subjects and the personal stories made the text more interesting to read" (Jason Davis)

"A strong text book to be used in an introduction to criminal justice course.... I truly enjoyed the writing style and liked the victimization twist it portrays" (Katie L. Swope)

"Comprehensive, accurate, interesting and appropriate for our students. I was impressed with this text and these authors.  Great use of illustrations and diagrams" (Jacqueline Mullany)

"The writing is clear and the book is written in a way that will engage students.  I like the focus on victims and integration of cases throughout the book.  I think students will understand key concepts better when they are able to apply the case studies" (Shana L. Maier)

"I really enjoy the book. It′s easy to follow and the case studies are great as well." (Megan Miner)
