“Straightforward, easy for students to understand, and spotlights all the critical stages in the criminal justice process timeline.”
“This is a great lower-level text for a court process class that offers a well-rounded introduction to the court process, structure, and relevant issues today. It is also priced well compared to other notable texts in the market.”
“Very informative text written by well-respected names. Covers all of the expected content in a criminal courts text in a way that engages students.”
“A very well done book on criminal courts—one that rivals the other texts that may be commonly used. I like many of the features: it is easy to follow, has great interface, and is up-to-date, including a lot of newer information.”
“[Criminal Courts] does a better job of covering the subject matter of an introductory course on law and torts. It does not overwhelm students with lists of cases. It provides specific information in each chapter in the form of boxes that present additional information in a concise and direct manner. Topics include comparative courts, examination of current controversies, movies and courts, and a view of the court system from participants.”
This is a great book for giving an overview of the criminal justice system. It's a great introduction to a system that can be confusing for students. The cases that are cited are relevant and interesting.
