Synopsis: CJ: Realities and Challenges empowers students to think critically about the daily realities and challenges of the criminal justice system. Using the text's framework of Observe–Investigate–Understand, students learn to recognize the myths of the U.S. criminal justice system and gain a greater comprehension of its complexities.

CJ: Realities and Challenges brings together the insights of an expert author team of practitioners and scholars to present a contemporary and realistic perspective on a vital U.S. institution.
