Almost 2,000 people are released from prison every day in the United States. Within three years, two thirds will be rearrested, and nearly half will return to prison for a new crime or parole violation. Though there has been progress of reentry initiatives in recent years, the academic literature has not kept pace. Offendery Reentry: Issues in the 21st Century presents qualitative and quantitative analyses of contemporary reentry issues through original and never-before-published research articles from high-profile academic and agency scholars. This thought-provoking text addresses all of the societal factors that affect the prisoner's reentry as well as the effects on the community - political, economic, academic, public safety, etc.
