Description

CJ 2013 provides a brief and affordable look at the criminal justice system without sacrificing academic rigor. Taking a contemporary approach, it supports true understanding by focusing on the core concepts that matter most. Each chapter features a unified presentation that links learning objectives, text segments, media explorations and end-of-chapter summaries together. MyCJLab offers a cutting-edge media tool that includes videos, simulations, activities, assessments, and course management solutions. Moving beyond rote memorization, the book encourages active participation with conversation-starting pedagogy that involves students with the research findings and current events shaping the field.


For the following titles only, we will be offering Point/Counterpoint Videos within MyCJLab for fall 2013 courses:

Schmalleger, Criminal Justice Brief 10e

Fagin, CJ2013

Schmalleger, Criminology Brief 2e


What are Point/Counterpoint Videos?

Videos of individuals presenting two opposing sides of controversial CJ topics. Both sides will be presented in 3-6 minutes of video. With each argument a speaker presents, justification and/or research that backs up that argument will be presented (and we’ll include citations or references). Students will hear a good explanation of WHY the speaker takes a certain stance. Included in MyCJLab will be 3-4 review questions (multiple choice) and 1 short answer questions related to the topic.
