Contemporary Issues in Criminal Justice
In this textbook designed to introduce research to lower division criminal justice and criminology students, editor D'Argenio (criminal justice, Mohawk Valley Community College) presents many cases on topics of interest to students, such as sexting, risky sexual behavior, and nonsocial reinforcement on Facebook. The text encourages students to think critically about crime theory and policy development and can be used as a companion text. Most chapters are conference papers; by design, there is no material drawn from news reports. Section 1 describes the role of the police research consultant and offers a beginner's guide to reading research articles. The rest of the book presents case studies and reviews of the literature in sections on researching criminological theory, researching policing issues, researching legal issues in the criminal justice system, and researching corrections issues. Learning features include chapter discussion questions and a glossary. Instructor's guide on CD including test bank - available upon adoption.
