Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Prison overcrowding has led criminal justice experts to seek viable options to incarceration. This first volume on 'doing time at home' reviews the key constitutional, legislative, social and psychological issues involved in this practice. The authors provide a cogent discussion of both the advantages and the disadvantages of house arrest. They consider several specific programmes, evaluate research conducted in a number of states and report on the results of their own research. This volume is concerned with an 'important social movement, not only from the correctional viewpoint, but in terms of some of the fundamental concerns of any society seeking to remain free and democratic' (from the Foreword).
