BOOK REVIEW FORMAT

Book Review Format

For the four book reviews follow this general guideline when writing again these are short do not write any more than 3 pages double spaced. All three pages do not have to be used. Always prioritize content quality over quantity.
Brief Book Review in the First Section:
All I need is a broad summary of the book you read here. Tell me the fundamental problem the author is trying to solve. Since this is a criminal justice course, crime will always be a problem. Identify the key people and/or entities the book is analyzing. Describe the key conclusions or case results the book discusses. your assessment of the book, finally.
Implications for Public Policy in the Second Section:
The main theme of this course is that many academics who study crime (criminology) and public officials (criminal justice practitioners) think that people need to be controlled by family, friends, schools, employers, police, and courts [e.g., informal and formal agencies] because, assumptively, we are all hedonistic, selfish, pleasure-maximizing individuals. While policymakers typically concentrate on formal control through law, academics tend to focus more on informal controls. A new “get tough on crime” measure, more police presence, and other crime-related public policy initiatives frequently tend to go aground. Law-based regulation is public policy.
This notion of control through the law will be contested in the novels you read this semester. As a result, what you should describe in this area is how the novel you read challenges the notion of control through the law. Be particular [for instance, how does the local culture in Our Guys influence and even undermine the law talk about families/friends of athletes, the police department, and the like]. If you think that control through the law can or should be achieved, talk about it for each book. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each strategy as illustrated by the book (for instance, if you think that control through the law is undesirable, consider how culture influenced the outcome of our boys; does the result support or refute that belief)?
