Balancing pros and cons, and marked by an optimism that is not generally characteristic of corrections, this book tackles controversial issues and takes on the “21st century challenges” transforming the field today. Comprehensive coverage includes the need for custody as well as treatment; the emergence of restorative as well as retributive justice; the importance of jails as well as prisons; the development of private as well as public correctional facilities; the use of community-based alternatives as well as custodial confinement; and the rights as well as restrictions of those behind bars. Controversial issues such as capital punishment, inmate amenities, truth-in sentencing, speculative prisons, electronic monitoring, boot camps, home furloughs, substance abuse interventions, and the use of condoms behind bars, will familiarize readers with the “hot topics” of the field. For anyone with an interest in correctional facilities and their administration.
