Additionally, you will learn about the practical and legal matters involved in running these programs, and you'll gain insight into their historical, philosophical, social, and legal underpinnings.

"I like the choice and development of the topics. I have found the material to be relevant to the course, well researched and presented in a manner that is both informative and interesting to the students and also to me. Numerous anecdotes, illustrations, etc., especially in the 6th Edition, have helped to make the material come alive." "The INSTRUCTOR'S MANUAL which accompanies this text has been a big help in focusing upon content highlights as well as in test preparation." "They have done a commendable job of presenting the material in ways that are relevant, informative, interesting and up-to-date." "I would describe this text as one which covers all the major topics well, including history, philosophy, legal issues, past and current community corrections programs, and changes and trends in community corrections. I particularly like the balance and extent of coverage and with few reservations, as noted elsewhere in this review, the format as well."
"I used this text because I liked the organization of materials and information. The language in the text is very clear and reader friendly. Each chapter and the contents of each section contain in-depth information and great examples. The text covers most of the literature on community corrections and has useful charts, graphs and class exercises." "I am very satisfied with this book. This book made teaching the class easier with their up-to-date information in the boxes found in each chapter. I like the structure and organization of the literature in nearly all chapters. I like the bullet format used in chapters to present the information. This made reading easier for students. The chapter summaries are also very good. The Case study exercises are also an excellent idea for this type of book."
"The writing style for ALL chapters is consistent and very good. The authors present the material in a clear, simple and easy to understand format for undergraduates. The language is clear and understandable and simply well written." "An excellent text for undergraduate and introductory graduate classes. A well-written and thorough textbook that contains all the materials and literature needed for an undergraduate course in community corrections."
"The discussion questions are well crafted and consequently ones that I would actually utilize in class or on webpostings." "A comprehensive examination of the various components of community corrections presented in an informative, no nonsense manner. The text contains a variety of practical aspects that will interest students and enhance their learning."
"I think the students enjoy the text and find it easy to learn and study from."
