Format: Paperback
This is a great book, and a must have for researchers and alike. Additionally, this is also an important and insightful, and noteworthy book to own (purchase), particularly those interested in the criminal justice system/field and in criminal justice corrections. In sum, a superb, intelligent, yet exciting and enthralling book voluminously - and quite generously - brimming with information! Do not let this book slip your through library of information! I wholeheartedly recommend this insightful book to all.
