Description - Criminal Justice by George S. Bridges

"This is a solid representation of criminological articles that are important to the discipline. The important material from each article has been retained, yet an undergraduate won't be overwhelmed. The articles are germane and flow together; a certain consistency in thought is presented to the student, as opposed to interesting but often semi-related articles. This book is accessible and, in several areas, very enjoyable reading." -- A. L. Marsteller, Drury College Also by the Editors: Crime (Vol. 1) and Juvenile Delinquency (Vol. 2) Why are these edited collections THE anthologies to use for teaching Criminal Justice, Criminology, or Juvenile Delinquency? * All volumes present the field accurately and completely to students and in a way that is understandable to undergraduates and, therefore, teachable. * All include rich collections of classic and contemporary articles, all of which have been carefully edited so that students can master the material. * All volumes contain essays written by the Editors, which provide the coherence and structure to the collections that undergraduate students need. Questions for Discussion and Writing and well-prepared indexes help to make these anthologies even more teachable. * All are edited by scholars who have the credentials and the undergraduate teaching experience to make this three volume set a particularly rich resource.
