Introduction to criminal justice
This accessible yet comprehensive introduction to criminal justice in the United States has been dramatically updated and revised to include coverage of criminal justice's new, expanded role in the "war on terrorism" as well as to incorporate other recent developments, cases, and research in the field. Bohm and Haley have more than 50 years of combined experience in teaching introduction to criminal justice as well as working in criminal justice -- Bohm as a correctional officer and Haley as a police officer. An optional package combines the text with both PowerWeb and Reel Justice Interactive Movie CD-ROM.

As textbooks go, this one was pretty good. It's comprehensive enough to give students a good basic understanding of the history, theory, and practice of criminal justice in the United States. One feature of this book that I especially liked was the "Careers in Criminal Justice" blurbs throughout; various specific jobs in the field are described by people who actually hold those positions. This included what the job entails, what they like best and what they like the least, an outline of their own education, and usually a recommendation as to what someone may want to study or do if they are interested in pursuing that particular job as well. This is something I think should be a feature included throughout any introductory textbook; it would potentially be helpful to students who are unsure of what direction they may want to take, simply because they don't really know what kinds of jobs are really available.
