Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Many criminal justtice books are either too vague, spends too much talking about celebrities, or gives textbook knowledge only. This one is simple with good enough description. This book is mostly about probation, parole, juvenile justice, and other types of programs that does not involve in incarceration/jail or prison. I got this book for my criminology class and it sure beats the price. If you are planning to get the 5th edition, don't, they are the same exact book with same pictures. The only difference is that the chapters are cut more often in the 5th edition. If you are going to buy this book for reference or personal use, don't bother. New laws are coming out on October 1, 2011 for California and renders this book useless.
