Explore the American corrections system from the perspective of both the corrections worker and the offender in the newest edition of AMERICAN CORRECTIONS. Comprehensive yet not overwhelming, the book covers both institutional and community sanctions in a balanced way. Readers will appreciate the high-profile corrections cases taken from recent headlines, helping to reinforce the theories found in the book. AMERICAN CORRECTIONS also examines topics such as assisting felons during the re-entry process, reducing recidivism, the death penalty, surveillance, and careers in the corrections field.
