about this item

Reflecting recent research, this second edition of a textbook for undergraduates contains updated statistics, emphasis on evidence-based practice, and a new chapter on prisoner reentry. The textbook seeks to encourage students to become evidence-based thinkers and to question given assumptions about correctional theory and the American correctional system. Part 1 examines theory and policy, with special emphasis on how political and social changes influence correctional theory and policy. Part 2 looks at the punishment response to crime, with material on justice, deterrence, and incapacitation. Part 3 considers the social welfare response, with chapters on restorative justice and rehabilitation. Part 4 looks at promising trends, such as the focus on reentry and early intervention with children, and provides six recommendations for the future.
