What a remarkable contribution! The book touches all of the major considerations in correctional law, illuminates why those considerations are important, and is eminently readable. --Brandon K. Applegate, Professor, University of South Carolina
I know of no other book that develops the area of correctional law with either the depth or the breadth of this book. A person who wants to find out about the law on corrections--issues, history, impact need go no further than this one volume. --Todd R. Clear, Dean, School of Criminal Justice, Rutgers University
An important and much needed book.... a comprehensive yet understandable text on a very important subject that affects millions of our citizens. Everyone involved in the correctional system should have a copy. --Edward Latessa, Professor and Director, School of Criminal Justice, University of Cincinnati
