Take a look at the American corrections system from the perspective of the corrections worker and the offender in AMERICAN CORRECTIONS, Eighth Edition. Comprehensive yet not overwhelming, the textbook covers both institutional and community sanctions in a balanced way. High-profile corrections cases taken from recent headlines dramatize real-life situations. You'll explore topics such as assisting felons during the re-entry process, reducing recidivism, the death penalty, surveillance, and careers in corrections.
