Todd R. Clear, one of the country's leading experts in the study of corrections, George F. Cole, considered by many as the 'founding father' of modern criminal justice study, and new co-author Michael D. Reisig, combine talents for the new Seventh Edition of the market-leading AMERICAN CORRECTIONS. A great author team, Clear's expertise in corrections complements Cole's organizational view of the system and fresh perspectives offered by Reisig. Together, they present a well-rounded, balanced approach to corrections. AMERICAN CORRECTIONS, Seventh Edition takes a sociological and humanistic approach to corrections. The text treats institutional and community sanctions in a balanced fashion and offers a look at the system from the perspective of both the corrections worker and the offender. It also presents the concept of corrections as a "system" of interconnected organizations and carries this theme throughout the book. From a more practical standpoint, many find this text appealing because it provides comprehensive coverage without overwhelming students. At 22 chapters and 592 pages, it is very compatible with standard semester-long courses.

About the Author:

Todd R. Clear is the Provost at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. He is currently involved in studies of religion and crime, the criminological implications of "place," and the concept of "community justice." He serves as founding editor of the journal Criminology and Public Policy. Previous writing covers the topics of correctional classification, prediction methods in correctional programming, community-based correctional methods, intermediate sanctions, and sentencing policy. Clear has been elected to national office in the American Society of Criminology and the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. He has served as a programming and policy consultant to public agencies in over 40 states and five nations, and his work has been recognized through several awards, including those of the American Society of Criminology, the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, The Rockefeller School of Public Policy, the American Probation and Parole Association, and the International Community Corrections Association. Clear is the author of three books on community justice: COMMUNITY JUSTICE (Cengage Learning), WHAT IS COMMUNITY JUSTICE? (Sage), and THE COMMUNITY JUSTICE IDEAL (Westview). He is also author of IMPRISONING COMMUNITIES: HOW MASS INCARCERATION MAKES DISADVANTAGED PLACES WORSE (Oxford University Press).
