Corrections: Exploring Crime, Punishment, and Justice in America, Third Edition, provides an introduction to the field of corrections. It examines the current state of American corrections; the directions being taken by corrections; and trends, such as the emphasis on punishment.
Beginning with an overview of recent trends in corrections, the book's 13 chapters discuss the history of American corrections; corrections and the courts; community corrections; restorative community justice; jails; prisons and prison life; and correctional administrators and personnel. There is also a discussion of special populations in prison; women offenders and correctional workers; juvenile corrections; the death penalty in America; and the future of corrections. Each chapter includes learning objectives, key terms, and an "Ethics Focus” exercise.

There are also photos of jails and prisons across the United States, and tables and graphs of crime trends and incarceration rates across the country. In addition, the book offers historical cases that have shaped prison reform and the most recent Supreme Court decisions affecting prisoners and prison administration.
