Understand types of crime, from white-collar to organized to terror attacks Follow law-enforcement officials and agencies as they hunt the bad guys Meet key players in criminal justice and see how and why the guilty are punished Check out jobs in the field Whether you plan to enter the criminal justice field or just want to know more about what turns some people to the dark side—and how the thin blue line fights back—this is your perfect guide to criminology basics.
