Description - Critical Issues in Crime and Justice by Albert R. Roberts

"Critical Issues in Crime and Justice is one of the most timely and informative textbooks I've seen. It provides an excellent overview of the most current challenges facing the criminal justice system today. I highly recommend it." -- Joseph Caruso, Hudson Valley Community College "This is the most significant criminal justice book of original works published in the current decade. It provides valuable information on policies, practices, and model programs in order to reduce the skyrocketing number of violent offenders and victims. It is the only book that includes the latest information on how to effectively intervene and remedy the violent crime problem." -- Eric W. Hickey, California State University, Fresno "Critical Issues in Crime and Justice is a fascinating blueprint for the criminal justice system of the future, an invaluable reference tool for progressive police executives, and an excellent teaching platform for all levels of criminal justice education." -- Deputy Police Chief Thomas W. Finn, MPA, Director of Public Safety, East Brunswick, New Jersey "Dr. Roberts has compiled an invaluable resource that can be used in a multitude of courses in undergraduate and graduate programs. The essays address significant, critical and timely issues in criminal justice, and as such, the book is a must-read for criminal justice practitioners, students, and anyone with an interest in criminal justice." -- Dr. Laura J. Moriarty, Virginia Commonwealth University "Dr. Albert R.
