Summary

Explore the American corrections system from the perspective of both the corrections worker and the offender in the newest edition of AMERICAN CORRECTIONS.

Readers will appreciate the high-profile corrections cases taken from recent headlines, helping to reinforce the theories found in the book. AMERICAN CORRECTIONS also examines topics such as assisting felons during the re-entry process, reducing recidivism, the death penalty, surveillance, and careers in the corrections field.
