Description:

The first "core" corrections book published by Thomson Wadsworth, ESSENTIALS OF CORRECTIONS, Third Edition introduces students to the essential elements of the United States' corrections system without overwhelming students with excessive detail or unnecessary technical jargon. Unbiased and accessible, this text includes coverage of the history of corrections, the key theories relating to crime causation, new chapters on race and gender issues in corrections, programs and approaches that are currently successful, and alternatives to incarceration. The authors' unparalleled practical approach, reinforced by contemporary examples, helps students understand the role corrections plays in our society and provides them with useful information about professional opportunities in the field.
