This content is released as a draft version for comment by the scholarly community. Please do not distribute as is.
The purpose of this collection of documents is to allow our colleagues in the criminal justice community to provide feedback on the content as it is developed. As such, it is incomplete and will contain many errors; we ask that you not distribute it or use it in your courses at this stage. When it is put into its final form, we will remove the “DRAFT” tags, and the final textbook will be made available for free to the scholarly community as an OER textbook. We will also make Kindle and print versions available at a low cost through Amazon’s KDP program.
