Organized into five sections, it provides a comprehensive understanding of the critical issues facing correctional administrators and the important functions of correctional operations. This edition includes the latest information on leadership, mentoring, empowerment, budgeting, external environments, special offenders and current issues.  Case studies, experiential exercises and group assignments appear throughout and help students understand leadership theories and supervisory practices.
