It was considered an excellent choice for our course. The course is LSCJ 5353, Women and Crime.
You have our course listed as "Mediation: History, Theory, Practice" . This is another course.
Would be a good supplement to a traditional text; I did not adopt because I chose a text that included research pieces, so I did not need an additional external source of research articles.
