Description

For courses in Introduction to Corrections and Correctional Institutions.

This text examines corrections not just from an academic view, but from those who are at the center of the system. It includes correctional history and theory, yet concentrates on what professionals do, why they do it, and the challenges they face every day. Taking an insider’s view, this edition discusses the impact of budgetary challenges, alternatives to incarceration and updates to legal decisions. New to this edition is the MyCrimeKit website featuring video interviews with correctional staff, clients and policymakers.
