One of the few bestselling introductory criminal justice texts written by professors who actively teach the undergraduate course each year, ESSENTIALS OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE, Ninth Edition, is uniquely attuned to the needs of today's students and instructors. This brief introduction to the criminal justice system provides students with thorough, objective coverage of all the latest research in the field, cutting-edge topical and case discussions, and the richest examination of career options to be found in a criminal justice text--all in fewer than 500 pages. The text is ideal for those who want the proven reliability of Siegel and Worrall's authorship in a shorter, paperback presentation. Impeccable scholarship is made accessible through the use of integrated learning objectives, plentiful visuals, and a unique "Reality-Check" theme designed to disabuse students of the incorrect notions, perceptions, and biases they bring to the class as a result of what they see on television or the Internet. And now, a unique new focus on understanding ethical issues gives students opportunities to grapple with ethical concerns faced by agents of the criminal justice system in their professional lives.
