The authors have included over 30 narratives from victims, offenders, and professionals working within the system. These personal narratives provide real-life examples of how crime and the criminal justice system are experienced.

"I hate all of those sensationalizing pictures and distracting sidebars in most introduction to criminal justice texts, but the students like the real stories, so this book is perfect. This text looks like what I would get if I could special order a book.
