MEDIA REVIEWS
"It is thorough in that it covers both federal and state issues and the editor has made every attempt to deliver the material in a way that is nonpartisan and balanced. This will be a useful resource for undergraduate libraries as well as larger public libraries." - ARBA
"This set provides a solid overview of the subject and contributors do an excellent job explaining legal jargon throughout. The combination of essays, encyclopedic entries, primary source documents, and a good index and glossary makes the resource navigable and useful for students and reference librarians. Recommended for public and high school libraries." - Booklist
"Each entry is signed by the contributor and includes a 'Further Reading' section. Volume 3 contains important primary documents showing the history and function of law enforcement, including the US Supreme Court and other federal courts, along with state and local considerations. . . . Summing Up: Recommended" - Choice
