Corrections: The Fundamentals provides a concise, compelling narrative perspective on American corrections practices and policies. Based on the author’s more than 25 years of research and work inside jails and prisons, Corrections: The Fundamentals describes in detail the people and systems that make up the twenty-first century corrections system. Plenty of practical, real life examples throughout helps readers understand the theories and ideas presented in a real world context. Topics are organized into four main parts: History, Systems, Prisoners, and Alternatives. A chapter on comparative corrections compares and contrasts the corrections system in the United States to corrections systems in other countries. Topical commentaries from recognized corrections authorities are featured throughout–including Sister Helen Prejean, James Q. Wilson, Marc Mauer and Wilbert Rideau. For anyone in criminal justice or law enforcement careers.
