Review:


"Correctional Contexts covers the primary areas I like to address in class but still allows me to introduce new material through my lectures. It is written at a level that challenges students and does an excellent job of exposing them to both classical and contemporary literature in the field."--Eric J. Wodahl, University of Wyoming


"This text is comprehensive: it provides a historical perspective, takes students through the entire spectrum of the field, and is instructor friendly."--Elvira M. White-Lewis, Texas A&M Commerce University
