Review quote

" . . . this book has great appeal to all criminal justice educators who want to know "how to" establish, monitor, and evaluate internship programs. Clearly there is a need to 'bridge the gap between criminal justice theory and criminal justice practice. This revised edition is a giant step in that direction." - Lee Ross, University of Wisconsin-Parkside
