Sinopsis:

The 10th edition of this book, popular for the last quarter century, continues to explore the cutting edge of the corrections field. Clear, well-designed, and eminently readable, it carefully balances current and past research with practical examples and issues; this book impressively includes dynamic 4-color graphs and photographs that maintain reader interest and ease understanding. It covers the latest hot topics, including incarcerated terrorist offenders, legal issues in imprisoning terrorists, federal legislation to restrict post-conviction conditions as well as conditions of confinement appeals. Other more conventional topics covered are: historical perspectives, the court process, imprisonment alternatives, correctional systems and functions, institutional clients and their rights, reintegration systems, and the future of corrections. For corrections officers, institutional employees, and others in the criminal justice system.

From the Publisher:

Now in its twentieth successful year, Corrections in America has grown into the preeminent work in its field--a comprehensive, skillfully organized introduction to all aspects of adult and juvenile corrections. The book covers everything from historical precedents to the very latest programs and practices. Its main focus is on how today's correctional subsystems function within the larger criminal justice system, with related theory and research introduced where appropriate. While Corrections in America covers more topics in more detail than other texts, its clarity and well- designed learning features make it a favorite with students, and its superior organization makes it easy for instructors to adapt to any type of course. This major new edition features many significant revisions and improvements. In particular it includes more on female offenders, alternative penalties, and juvenile violence, as well as updated examples, data, and references throughout. No other text offers such a thorough, current, and useful treatment of America's correctional systems.
