9781577662464: Corrections: A Concise Introduction

The First Edition of this outstanding volume became a favorite choice among instructors who wanted to offer their students a concise yet thorough introduction to the correctional system. The Second Edition remains an uncluttered, authoritative synthesis of the key elements of the field--from policies, contexts, facilities, and agencies to correctional clientele, programs, personnel, organizations, and issues. Each topic is discussed both individually and in terms of how the parts mutually influence the whole. The Second Edition's manageability, organization, low cost, and the author's use of easy-to-understand language make it a powerful tool for instruction. In addition, questions at the end of each chapter direct students' attention to valuable insights and stimulate critical thinking. Outstanding features include: 1) updated statistics, including the unprecedented blanket commutation of all death sentences in Illinois; 2) charts, graphs, and photographs that visually enhance the text; 3) boxed examples of real-life issues, accompanied by related, probing questions; and 4) a thorough listing of each chapter's sources, including easy-to-access Web sites.
