This new introductory text gives students and instructors what they need–a comprehensive look at corrections in a readable, engaging format. CORRECTIONS: A BRIEF INTRODUCTION is specifically designed to appeal to different learning styles and hold students’ interest. The text examines how evidence-based practices are used in corrections and how theory is linked to treatment and punishment of offenders, and encourages critical thinking about community corrections, prison life, treatment of offenders, reentry, legal issues, the death penalty, and juveniles in corrections. Corrections is ideal for instructors who want comprehensive yet concise coverage of the basic required topics in a corrections course.

From the Back Cover:

"Corrections: A Contemporary Introduction" by Leanne F. Alarid and Philip L. Reichel examines the contemporary world of corrections by linking theory and practice, highlighting the importance of policy, and integrating diversity. This exciting new text examines the nature and application of corrections and punishment while providing an overview of criminological, historical, legal, and policy-oriented works. This text discusses the foundations of corrections and how it relates to contemporary correctional issues. Students are encouraged to think critically about the future of corrections, which is valuable whether they are future practitioners or informed consumers. Three major themes guide the text:

  • The link between theory and practice
The text links theory and practice to help students understand-and to critically question-the rationales for punishment. Contemporary sentencing policies and practices are linked to theories of punishments and also discussed in their historical context.
  • The importance of policy:
Historical and contemporary correctional policy initiatives are discussed throughout. Policies, procedures, and programs related to restorative justice and community corrections are highlighted.
  • The integration of diversity:
Race/ethnicity and gender are fully integrated throughout each chapter of the text. For example, rather than a separate chapter on women offenders, material on women is interwoven with coverage of men. "This text is clearly superior to the numerous books I have reviewed in regard to depth, diversity, detail, and it provides the most current knowledge available."--Ted Wallman, University of North Florida "The pedagogical features significantly contribute to the strengths of the book. The "Hot Topics" and "What Works?" sections provide essential examples to students not only of historical information, but also current and contemporary problems that face corrections." --Hilary Estes, Southern Illinois University
