ESSENTIALS OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE, Tenth Edition, 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. Impeccable scholarship is made accessible through the use of integrated learning objectives, visuals, and a unique "Reality Check" theme designed to disabuse students of the incorrect notions, perceptions, and biases they bring to the class. A 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. What's more, the MindTap that accompanies this text helps students practice and master techniques and key concepts while engaging them with video cases, career scenarios, visual summaries, and interactive labs for exploring investigative techniques.
"Choosing to use Siegel/Worrall, Essentials for Criminal Justice was honestly the best decision I have made in a very long time! The textbook was excellent. The students loved the material, and I found it quite easy to work with. PLUS - MindTap was incredible! As a new instructor, the support and framework it provided me was invaluable. I never worried about the administrative time needed to compile grades and the analytics it provided. MindTap allowed me to identify students at risk long before it became an academic issue. Again – great product!!"
