About the Author:

Todd R. Clear is the Provost at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. He is currently involved in studies of religion and crime, the criminological implications of "place," and the concept of "community justice." He serves as founding editor of the journal Criminology and Public Policy. Previous writing covers the topics of correctional classification, prediction methods in correctional programming, community-based correctional methods, intermediate sanctions, and sentencing policy. Clear has been elected to national office in the American Society of Criminology and the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. He has served as 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 three books on community justice: COMMUNITY JUSTICE (Cengage Learning), WHAT IS COMMUNITY JUSTICE? (Sage), and THE COMMUNITY JUSTICE IDEAL (Westview). He is also author of IMPRISONING COMMUNITIES: HOW MASS INCARCERATION MAKES DISADVANTAGED PLACES WORSE (Oxford University Press).

Review:

"I would describe this text as a large book in a small package. The text has all the attributes of a larger, hardcover textbook. . . . There is nothing missing here other than the weight."

"I believe that the book's presentation is the best on the market. The reading is consistently interesting for students at the undergraduate level and concepts are presented clearly."

"The book covers an amazing breadth of material in a rather succinct format, and the material presented is presented in a fair and even-handed manner. The approach is very appealing and the style of writing engaging. The book can be used to convey foundational knowledge, while allowing instructors to customize their course to their own style."
