Excerpts

The first edition of this book was written while I was a senior parole officer for the New York State Division of Parole. Since that time, new concepts (or sometimes simply buzzwords) have affected both the theory and practice of probation and parole. Some, such ascommunity-based corrections,had a brief life, while thejustice modelanddeterminate sentencinghave had long-lasting effects, creating the need forgraduated sanctionsandintermediate punishments.More recently,blended sentencesandrestorative justicehave become popular expressions of the need to respond to political pressures for greater punishment without completely abandoning the rehabilitative ideal. Sentiments toward crime and criminals hardened, highlighted by "truth in sentencing" (no parole/early release) and "three-strikes-and-your're-out" (life imprisonment on third felony conviction) statutes. Political changes generated by (often pandering) politicians produced such incongruities asmandatory sentenceswithsanctioning flexibility.The rush to punish encountered spending curbs and tax cuts. The results of "tough-on-crime" statutes and the "war on drugs" overburdened our correctional facilities, and sound-bite polemics replaced careful and thoughtful policy development. These swirling waters of criminal justice serve as a backdrop for the discussion of probation and parole in this book. The eighth edition has been streamlined and expanded into 14 chapters, with some chapters reorganized to further enhance ease of classroom use. The discussion of juvenile justice is now found in chapter 4--the juvenile court--and chapter 5--juvenile probation, institutions, and aftercare. Because the problem of drug and alcohol abuse is so prevalent in probation and parole practice, material on supervising substance-abusing offenders has been added to chapter 11. In recognition of public concern with sex offenders, additional material on supervising this clientele also appears in chapter 11, as does an examination of supervising persons with HIV/AIDS. To remain at the cutting edge of the field, this edition continues to use materials from juvenile and adult probation and parole agencies throughout the country, providing a state-of-the-art examination of probation and parole practice. (Material whose source is not specifically cited is from the appropriate agency.) As in previous editions, review questions appear at the end of each chapter. In addition, each chapter highlights key terms and ends with a series of key terms and relevant Internet sites. The instructor's resource guide available for this book provides a model curriculum and true-false, multiple choice, and essay test questions. The author would like to thank Kimberly Davies, executive editor at Prentice Hall, for her dedication to this project, assistant editor Sarah Holle, production editor Linda B. Pawelchak, and reviewers Larry Andrews, Missouri Western 'State College; Bruce Berg, California State University-Long Beach; Steve Christiansen, Green River Community College; and Robert Weiss, SUNY-Plattsburg for their thoughtful reviews and suggestions.
