Examines the future of America's corrections system and offers practical advice for reform
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Dilulio, a leading expert in correctional thought and policy and author of Governing Prisons ( LJ 1/88), has written a thought-provoking book about American corrections: where we are today and where new trends seem to be taking us. The facts are clear. The number of incarcerated people will continue to grow, overcrowding will continue to be rampant, and resistance to new prisons and jails will be coupled with plans for alternative forms of community-based corrections. After carefully examining various approaches to these problems including judicial intervention, privatization, and community service, the author comes to some startling conclusions. A worthwhile addition to the corrections literature, this is recommended for academic libraries and large public library collections.
