This new introductory text gives students and instructors what they need–a comprehensive look at corrections in a readable, engaging format. CORRECTIONS: A BRIEF INTRODUCTION is specifically designed to appeal to different learning styles and hold students' interest. The text examines how evidence-based practices are used in corrections and how theory is linked to treatment and punishment of offenders, and encourages critical thinking about community corrections, prison life, treatment of offenders, reentry, legal issues, the death penalty, and juveniles in corrections. Corrections is ideal for instructors who want comprehensive yet concise coverage of the basic required topics in a corrections course.

Philip L. Reichel is Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Northern Colorado. He is the author of Comparative Criminal Justice Systems: A Topical Approach (6th ed., 2013); coauthor of Corrections (2013), and coeditor of Human Trafficking: Exploring the International Nature, Concerns, and Complexities (2012). Dr. Reichel has also authored or coauthored more than 30 articles, book chapters, and encyclopedia entries. He has lectured at universities in Austria, Germany, and Poland, participated in a panel for the United Nations University, was a presenter for a United Nations crime prevention webinar on forced labor trafficking, and was an invited speaker at Zhejiang Police College in Hangzhou, China.
