For courses in Introduction to Corrections.

Corrections in America has been the best-selling text in the field since the 1970s. The 13th edition continues its established tradition of comprehensive, student-friendly coverage with extensive supplemental material. It covers virtually all aspects of corrections, including its history, prisons in the present, correctional ideologies, sentencing and legal issues, alternatives to imprisonment, institutional corrections, and correctional clients. Freshly updated, this new edition includes research and issues important today, such as the recent decline in prison populations. Effective photos and figures provide a visual learning experience that presents complex data in a very simple and readable manner.
