Description:

This introductory-level corrections textbook examines the nature and application of corrections and punishment and provides an overview of criminological, historical, legal, and policy-oriented works so that students can understand its importance and implications in our society. This approach provides students with a information and perspective that promotes critical thinking and analysis. We believe this approach will be helpful whether the student has an eventual career in the broad field of criminal justice or is an informed consumer of crime news and information. Three major themes orient the text's content and structure: Linking theory and practice The importance of policy Inclusiveness (integrating gender and race/ethnicity into each chapter as standard coverage rather than covered as special issues as done in the competing books)
