The book review should be approximately 5 pages in length. Papers should follow the formatting guidelines in the syllabus and include a title page, where your name should appear. In addition, any citations and references should strictly follow APA 7th edition citation and reference guidelines. Students should use the following subheadings in their paper: Author Information, General Summary, Author Thesis/Conclusions, Personal Reaction, Conclusion. Each book review should include the following:
(1) Information about the author (5 points): It is important to know information about the author of the book. This information may require some outside research. Are they qualified (educationally or by experience) to write this book? Has the author written any other books on similar topics or conducted additional work in this area? Do we know anything about the author’s political, philosophical, or theoretical viewpoint?
(2) General summary (25 points): Briefly state what the book is about. This should not be a long summary of the book. You should be reporting general ideas, themes, and issues discussed throughout. Often the authors provided multiple specific examples to highlight much broader issues in the American justice system. You should consider discussing those in relationship to the general theme of the book.
(3) Author’s thesis/conclusions (30 points): What do you believe is the purpose of this book? What is the author trying to say about the subject? What message do you believe the author is looking for the reader to take away?
(4) Your reaction to the book (10 points): Did this book change your perspective on disproportionality, the criminal justice system, or social institutions? If so, how or why? You should elaborate on your opinion and provide support for your arguments (e.g., consider using additional research or sources).
(5) Summary/conclusions (5 points): Was the book well written? Did the author support his arguments or purpose? Would you recommend the book to anyone else (why or why not and/or to whom)?
