View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

In this anthology, prominent resident scholars present overviews of the adult corrections systems of Belgium, Canada, Finland, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, Namibia, Romania and the U.S. These national profiles provide a rare comparative and international perspective on corrections trends, issues and problems.

Each chapter provides a historical synopsis of the country's corrections system, an overview of problems confronting corrections today, a survey of future prospects, and an analysis of the corrections system's conformity to international agreements and guidelines. Current issues highlighted in each chapter include: prison overcrowding, lack of alternatives to incarceration, victims' rights and restorative justice, prison privatization, protection of offenders' human rights, and the special needs of women inmates, drug addicts and other offender groups. Augmenting the national profiles are the editor's introduction and glossary.

Review:

"This book was designed...to be a textbook in criminal justice... It clearly meets its goals in that regard." -- Prof. Magnus Seng, International Criminal Justice Review (vol 16, no 1)

"This...is a unique collection that provides valuable information on jurisdictions that have hitherto been overlooked in the [corrections] literature." -- Prof. Julian Roberts, University of Ottawa

"this book...finally moves correctional research well beyond its ethnocentric borders towards a more inclusionary framework of comparative thought." -- Prof. Livy Visano, York University
