Great book for my CJ class at UHDowntown. My professor Dewey solely pulls all information for a quiz out of this detaled book.
Nenayally
Books always in good condition
BORZOTA
I bought this book for a graduate class I was taking. I will continue to use if for classes I teach. Abadinsky's writing is easy to read and most informative.
Laizel
The product is of good quality. They make sure you product arrives to you safely and only took me 3 days or 2 to get my order. Very good quality!
Dobpota
I was so disappointed when I got my book because I thought I ordered the 6th edition and I used the 5th edition that I was sent but a lot was missing that I actually needed. Any way, I did not want to send it back because there was not enought time!

In addition to having read this book, I have had the priviledge of being one of Dr. Abadinski's students.
Abadinski is not a professor that reads directly from the book, in fact he seldom opens it. As he talks on, you can almost follow word for word what is written in the book.
The book gives an excellent overview of the Judicial system. It covers the history of law and courts, gives a great description of types of legal systems in America and Europe, and has a great chapter on law schools. Some of Abadinski's experiences in the New York and Illinois court systems are apparent including the selection of judges in New York and his own dealing with the ACLU when he tried to publish a paper about the NY probation/parole department that would have resulted in an unfair termination.
I think that this is an excellent book for any criminal justice student, or anyone interested in the justice system in general. I entered his class as someone interested in attending a local law school in hopes of becomming a public defender. Afterwords, however, I have learned how utterly useless the justice system is. The figures show how less than %3 of cases ever go to trial.
Dr. Abadinski holds his Ph.D. from New York university as well as an MSW from Fordham university. He is a former parole officer.
