For courses in Introduction to Corrections and Corrections Theory and Policy.

This new introductory text gives students and instructors what they need—a comprehensive look at corrections in a readable, engaging format. The book is specifically designed to appeal to different learning styles and hold students’ interest. The text examines how evidence-based practices are used in corrections and how theory is linked to treatment and punishment of offenders, and encourages critical thinking about community corrections, prison life, treatment of offenders, reentry, legal issues, the death penalty, and juveniles in corrections. Corrections is ideal for instructors who want comprehensive yet concise coverage of the basic required topics in a corrections course.
