Book Description: Routledge, 2011. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "The editors if this textbook believe that it is not good social policy to incarcerate too many of our citizens, and that many can be supervised in the community without seriously jeopardizing public safety. The text covers theoretical and practical aspects of community corrections, with emphasis on how community corrections can succeed operating under the basic philosophy of reintegrationconnecting offenders with legitimate opportunity and reward structures. Some chapter topics are sentencing, probation, parole, juveniles, offender assessment, intermediate sanctions, and special populations (sex offenders, substance abusers, female offenders, and the mentally ill). The text's two-color layout features b&w photos, key terms, summary boxes, bulleted checklists, brief sidebars, review questions, and a glossary. This fifth edition includes two new chapters surveying what works in community corrections and how programs can be evaluated."-- Reference and Research Book News.
