About The Solution

Overview

Created through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process, CJ2 is an engaging and accessible solution to accommodate the diverse lifestyles of today's learners at a value-based price. Widely respected in both academia and law enforcement, authors Gaines and Miller deliver solid coverage in an innovative format that is ideal for the unique needs of today's tech-savvy, on-the-go learner. CJ's traditional 17-chapter organization makes for a seamless transition from other texts and ensures comprehensive coverage. But by cutting superfluous boxes and streamlining text, CJ cuts the length of chapters in half--even with the addition of a wealth of captivating visuals. Appealing to a broad range of learning styles, CJ also includes a full suite of unique learning tools, including quizzes, games, videos, flashcards, audio, and more--all just a click away. The result is a book much more engaging and manageable for today's criminal justice student.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • Gaines and Miller's proven integrated learning objective system keeps readers focused on the most important concepts to maximize student success. Chapters open with a concrete set of objectives, each of which is flagged in the chapter's margins ("LO1", "LO2", etc.) as the material is covered in depth. In addition, "In Review Cards" at the end of the Student Edition equip students with a portable study tool containing all of the information they need to prepare for class.
  • The most extensive collection of "Career Assets" available for the course prepares students for real-world practice. Relevant "CareerPrep" notes offer how-to information in every chapter, and insightful "Career Tips" are linked to the text's numerous real-world examples.
  • Integrated "Technology in CJ" sidebars in every chapter spotlight technological innovations and advancements that are crucial to today's criminal justice system.
  • CJ delivers a wealth of resources to meet the needs of a variety of learning styles and situations. Its unique student-centered pedagogical tools include "SkillPrep," the basic study/writing skills module provided before Ch. 1, as well as the "StudyPrep" and "TestPrep" insets integrated into the chapters, and the active learning headings utilized throughout the text.
  • Saving you valuable time, "Instructor Prep" cards at the back of the Instructor's Edition make preparation simple. Detachable cards for each chapter offer a quick map of chapter content, a list of corresponding PowerPoint and video resources, additional examples, and suggested assignments and discussion questions to help you organize chapter content efficiently. Class prep has never been easier!
  • CJ2 offers all of the content and resources you expect with a supplements package that is second to none--including the "Instructor Approved" Test Bank, which indicates that every question in the test bank has been carefully reviewed by experienced criminal justice instructors for quality, accuracy, and content coverage. Our "Instructor Approved" seal, appearing on the front cover, is our assurance that you are working with an assessment and grading resource of the highest caliber.

What's New

  • Each of the 17 chapters now opens with a high-profile vignette to help students begin absorbing and applying course material. Vignettes feature current and highly recognizable cases such as the near-fatal shooting of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tuscan, AZ, and Michigan v. Fisher, a U.S. Supreme Court case that debated the Fourth Amendment prohibition of unreasonable searches and seizures.
  • A dramatically increased number of marginal key terms in the running glossary and a wealth of new or updated figures help students master chapter material.
  • New "You Be the Judge" boxes hone students' critical thinking skills by putting them in the position of a judge in a hypothetical criminal case that is based on an actual court case. Examples challenge students to evaluate the limits of police discretion when it comes to domestic violence and evaluate the fairness of a two-hundred-year prison term for possession of child pornography.
