As riveting and current as today’s headlines--and filled with cutting-edge material that addresses the exploding number of careers available in the field--CRIMINAL JUSTICE IN ACTION, Seventh Edition, is designed with today’s busy students and instructors in mind. Concepts make sense to students, thanks to vivid straight-from-the-headlines vignettes at the beginning of every chapter. Choosing what’s important to remember is a snap with each chapter’s numbered objectives, which are reinforced throughout the chapter as well as in the book’s supplementary items. Thinking critically and writing aren’t so intimidating for students with the guidance of practical new writing activities. Reviewers praise the book’s crisp, clear topic coverage as much as its engaging magazine-style design and captivating writing, which combine to draw students--even today’s visual learners--into the material.
