"How well the criminal justice system works in a democratic society is a good measure of the health of democracy in that society. . . . I can't imagine a more appropriate foundational book than this one for preparing students to take up the challenges of making our criminal justice system the
best it can be."--From the Foreword by Nicholas P. Lovrich, Washington State University-Pullman
"The use of humor and personal descriptions is a great strength to the book. This is a topic that is hard for students because it is to some degree dry and can be overly formalistic. A book that can engage and teach in this area is a unique commodity."--Thomas Hughes, University of Louisville
"As I read the manuscript and continued to see the authors addressing all of the seminal literature, I became more impressed with their ability to weave organization theory into a very approachable presentation. This is a good, solid book and I would adopt it for an undergraduate
class."--Willard M. Oliver, Sam Houston State University
