Crime and Justice PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Crime and Justice free pdf Crime and Justice: Learning through Cases is an introductory criminology book that teaches students key concepts through case studies. It has been adopted in both criminology and criminal justice courses. Each chapter opens with a 3-5 page case study, then the body of the chapter explains the key concepts in more depth, referring back to the original case study. While there are a number of crime books that incorporate case studies, most of these are just a few sentences in side-bars or tangential add-ons at the end of the chapter. Crime and Justice: Learning through Cases has been praised as a book that really works for students because they are engaged in the in-depth case studies early on. Evaluating the cases helps students develop critical thinking skills. The new edition will be updated and revised throughout and will contain new chapters covering gender in the CJ system, terrorism, and juvenile justice.
