Explore the American corrections system from the perspective of both the corrections worker and the offender in AMERICAN CORRECTIONS, Tenth Edition. Comprehensive yet not overwhelming, the book covers both institutional and community sanctions, incorporating high-profile corrections cases taken from recent headlines to reinforce important theories. The authors "tell it like it is," offering you thought-provoking, unbiased examinations of such topics as assisting felons during the re-entry process, reducing recidivism, the death penalty, and surveillance. You'll also get a frontline view of careers in the corrections field.

About the Author:

Todd R. Clear is the University Professor of Criminal Justice at Rutgers University-Newark, New Jersey. He is currently involved in studies of mass incarceration, the impact of prison policy on communities and the concept of "community justice." He was founding editor of the journal Criminology and Public Policy. His previous writing covers the topics of correctional classification, prediction methods in correctional programming, community-based correctional methods, intermediate sanctions and sentencing policy. Clear has served as president of the American Society of Criminology and the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. He has been a programming and policy consultant to public agencies in over 40 states and five nations, and his work has been recognized through several awards, including those of the American Society of Criminology, the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, The Rockefeller School of Public Policy, the American Probation and Parole Association and the International Community Corrections Association. Clear is the author of two recent books on correctional policy: IMPRISONING COMMUNITIES: HOW MASS INCARCERATION MAKES DISADVANTAGED PLACES WORSE (Oxford University Press) and THE PUNISHMENT IMPERATIVE: THE RISE AND FAILURE OF MASS INCARCERATION (NYU Press).
