Summary

Introduction to Penology and Corrections offers the best of two worlds, covering the practical matters that jail and prison administrators face, along with the theories behind punishment and the management of correctional facilities.

Introduction to Penology and Corrections by experienced author Laura Pinto Hansen combines the study of punishment alongside corrections, balancing the perspectives of academics, practitioners, and prisoners. In addition, the text includes cross-cultural, cross-national views in punishment and corrections, as well as real-life stories from professionals in corrections, family members of the accused/incarcerated, and prisoners. While taking into consideration the practical matters that jail and prison administrators and staff face, this comprehensive text also explores the theories behind punishment and the management of correctional facilities.

Professors and students will benefit from:
  • Comprehensive review of philosophies and history of punishment, both in the United States and elsewhere in the world.
  • Each chapter includes Stories from Behind Bars and International Perspectives designed to offer an inclusive view of the culture of punishment through the eyes of staff and prisoners.
  • Introduction to a wide variety of potential careers in the field of corrections today, including the perceptions and realities of these jobs.
  • Current social justice issues surrounding criminal justice and corrections are spotlighted.
  • Comparisons of male and female detainees and inmates, along with the challenges that the transgender population face while incarcerated.
  • Medical and mental health issues, including those that have been particularly challenging in corrections during the COVID-19 pandemic, are highlighted.
  • Learning objectives and key terms with definitions in each chapter help students understand new concepts.
