Great corrections book  May 2, 2011
by


This new edition is definitely an improvement over previous ones--it's much heavier on the recent empirical research, the chronology of the correction turning points in America allows us to comprehend better why and how we have reached to this point. Excellent book for anyone interested in field of corrections and criminal justice. I'm very happy to deal with ecampus. The used textbook looks as if it is new and the price was good. Thanks.






American Corrections: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

"I would describe this as the best, most comprehensive, up-to-date, student friendly text in corrections available."

"I adopted American Corrections because it is comprehensive, critical, colorful and contemporary. I am satisfied because of its coverage which helps me to provide students with the overview they need in a required class."

"I believe the book is one of the best books on the market to date. The book is insightful and does an excellent job of bringing the reader into the multifaceted world of corrections. The chapters on prison and prison culture are particularly interesting and highlight the complex nature of prison life."
