Description

Student-centric and informative without being encyclopedic, the revised Second Edition of Introduction to Criminal Justice: The Essentials, focuses seamlessly on key topics without digression. Drawing from deep wells of teaching experience, this author team has created the text that they’ve always wanted for their own classes. Students will be able to understand the material intuitively, while still being challenged to think, read, and write critically.


New to the Second Edition:

  • New critical thinking questions at the end of every chapter that challenge students to do more than look for the “right answer”
  • Updated crime figures and other criminal justice-related statistics
  • New boxed inserts throughout the text, including discussion of what happens when crime-fighting theory fails to deliver in practice and an examination of recent challenges to the FBI’s image
  • New coverage of the role of the law enforcement academy in the standardization of policing training and practices
  • New material on Technology and Law Enforcement that details the strengths and weaknesses associated with the use of conducted energy devices (i.e., Tasers) and body-worn cameras
  • Updated and expanded look at police misconduct, including arrest-related citizen deaths

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • In-depth coverage of key topics that focuses on what students need to understand without extraneous coverage
  • Seamless exposition and format
  • Text boxes, tables, and other visual aids that convey information with perfect economy
  • Critical reading, thinking, and writing tools built right into the text
