Introduction to Criminal Justice is the perfect text for students interested in pursuing a career in criminal justice and for those who simply want to learn more about this important social institution. The authors' more than 50 years of combined experience in teaching introduction to criminal justice as well as working in the field -- Bohm as a correctional officer and Haley as a police officer -- come through in their accessible yet comprehensive presentation. They make it easy for readers to understand that much of what the public "knows" about criminal justice in the United States is myth, and help students to learn the truth about the U.S. criminal justice system.

This book is used for my Introduction to Criminal Justice Class. It is full of information and stories of current events that have happend in the Justice System. I find the writing and information very good in showing how crime is fought, why people commit crime, and how I can prevent crime.

Introduction to Criminal Justice

Comprehensive and complete textbook about criminal justice basics such as law enforcement, crime trends, the court system, the correctional (penal) system, and juvenile justice. The authors write in a clear and understandable way. The discourse solicits unbiased facts, and is thorough without dragging on into unnecessary details. Overall a great textbook for the criminal justice beginner.

This book is a collection of leftist victimology and propaganda. A total waste of time. This is what we come to expect out of academia.

Textbook is in great condition, like was described before purchase. Price was cheaper than local bookstore, and the product is just as good.

This book was in even better quality than listed as online. It was not in plastic wrap, but still appeared untouched. Great seller, I will look for them in the future when I buy books. I basically got a brand new book at a used book price!
