CORRECTIONS TODAY offers the most practical, engaging, career-focused, and authoritative introduction to corrections available. It is a briefer, more visual, paperback alternative to expensive hardback Introduction to Corrections texts. Perfect for those who have grown tired of encyclopedic texts that are lacking in real-world concepts and application, it examines the field of corrections through the lens of students who are giving serious thought to a career in the field or are now working in corrections but seeking an advanced degree in order to obtain promotion and/or switch job paths.
