Review:

This type of learning provides students with mental hooks on which they can hang the concepts that are described in their books. Barbara Peat has done an excellent job of providing such case studies for the benefit of students and professors who teach courses in the field of corrections. They should prove useful in a wide range of corrections courses. --George Larry Mays, New Mexico State University

Case Studies in Corrections: Examples, Exercises, Discussion Points, and Practitioner Interviews is the ideal companion for a variety of corrections textbooks. Dr. Peat's extensive practitioner and academic background is evident throughout the pages of this highly credible and well-organized source of authoritative information. Corrections professionals will also find this book to be a useful addition to their library. --David F. Owens, Onondaga Community College

This is exactly the type of book that helps instructors bridge the gap between the academic and practical worlds. The case study examples can be used in a variety of projects, assignments, or for class discussion. The content and format of the book lends itself nicely to complementing a primary text for a corrections class. --Kathrine Johnson, Ph.D., University of West Florida
