A new, back-to-basics introduction to criminal justice, thoughtfully structured to offer a much more direct approach than the bloated and design-heavy competitors. Student friendly without being busy, Introduction to Criminal Justice:The Essentials has been designed from the ground up to cover all the key topics in an intro criminal justice class. The strong writing team of Winfree, Mays, and Alarid provides 90 years of combined experience teaching undergraduate criminal justice students.


  • New introduction to criminal justice text that is designed to be thorough, yet brief. The authors have created a book that covers the necessary range of topics in an accessible and coherent manner. 
  • Unlike competing books, this book was written from the ''ground up'' not condensed from a much longer text.
  • The authors present students with the information necessary to make them successful in their subsequent criminal justice classes, as well as to be informed consumers of criminal justice services as citizens of the United States.
  • Presents crucial information without drowning students in a sea of interesting, but unnecessary, facts and trivial topics.
  • Boxes, tables, and figures provide information in the simplest, most easily understood ways possible. Students are able to understand the presentations intuitively, while still being challenged to think critically.
  • Text carefully written to stimulate critical reading, thinking, and writing skills.
