Show synopsis Jim Fagin brings expansive law enforcement and teaching experience and expertise to this highly applied text, which introduces students to the real world of criminal justice. The 2005 Update incorporates the latest developments with the Department of Homeland Security, the impact of the U.S. fight against terrorism on the criminal justice system, and how the outcome of the 2004 Presidential Election is likely to impact the criminal justice system. Fagin uses clear and simple examples drawn from decades of experience to bring criminal justice alive for students, and he places the criminal justice system in the broader context of American government. Fagin's diverse background lends itself beautifully to introductory text authorship! He is a recognized educator in the administration of justice; an expert in areas of contemporary concern, such as transnational terrorism, computer crime, and computer technologies in criminal justice; and has hands-on experience in law enforcement. No other introductory criminal justice author is as qualified to present the entire picture of terrorism and its impact on the criminal justice system.
