Summary

The "briefest of the brief," A Concise Introduction to Criminal Justice meets the demand for a more succinct examination of the criminal justice system in the United States, one that focuses almost exclusively on the police, courts, and corrections. Features of A Concise introduction to Criminal Justice: "Careers in Criminal Justice" provide students with relevant criminal justice career information presented by criminal justice professionals. A focus on the "myths" of criminal justice enables students to understand that much of what they "know" and the public "knows" about criminal justice is wrong or misunderstood. Critical-thinking questions and exercises allow students to develop the ability to ask critical questions about criminal justice so they can begin to think about viable solutions to the issues of today.
