An easy-to-use, easy-to-teach, comprehensive overview of the field of corrections.
Based on its established tradition of comprehensive, student-friendly coverage with extensive supplemental material, Corrections in America
has been the best-selling text in the field for over 40 years. 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. This new edition includes expanded coverage of contemporary issues, including juvenile facilities, state and federal prisons, and security threats and gangs. Photos and figures provide a visual learning experience that presents complex data in a very simple and readable manner. Key words, review questions, definitions and objective-based summaries make instruction more focused, and help students master the materials.
