    Review quote
    Comprehensive, rigorous, scholarly, evidence-driven, balanced, and incisive, this authoritative work sets the standard for correctional and criminal justice psychology course texts, and is applicable to a wide range of disciplines including psychology, psychiatry, criminology, sociology, law, forensic nursing, and related fields. Not only would the book be particularly useful as a textbook for graduate or senior undergraduate courses in criminal justice, forensic, or correctional psychology, it is a valuable and trustworthy resource for professionals in the field. In October 2010, the field of correctional and criminal justice psychology lost a giant with the sad passing of Dr. Donald Andrews, although a generous portion of his life work is captured, and his legacy continues to live on, within the pages of this book.~ MARK E. OLVER, British Journal of Psychology (2011), 102, 684-694 "With each new edition, Andrews and Bonta have striven to add to their knowledge base, incorporate new studies, and improve the readability of their work. Comprehensive, rigorous, scholarly, evidence-driven, balanced, and incisive, this authoritative work sets the standard for correctional and criminal justice psychology course."-- British Journal of Psychology (2011), 102, 684-694
