    Again class work. This book was at times interesting and at times extremely difficult to Understand. Thank goodness for the great teachings of Dr. B without whom this book would have not made as much sense as it did. Again critical thinking from a criminal justice perspective. I really enjoyed my CRJ 102 class and the way it was taught throughout the semester.
