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)
