Description

This anthology features twelve contemporary topical areas in corrections--chosen for the unique challenges which each presents to researchers, correctional practitioners, and prisoners. Each topic is systematically examined from three different perspectives--academic, practitioner, and prisoner--for a total of thirty-six readings. Students compare each perspective and determine how they diverge or how they are similar. The twelve topic areas are: * Institutional Crowding * Growth of Women Prisoners in Corrections * Elements of Correctional Rehabilitation and Treatment * HIV/AIDS in Corrections * Prison Gangs * Prison Violence * Security Housing Units: The Supermax Prison * Women Guarding Men * Correctional Privatization * Juveniles in Adult Corrections * Capital Punishment: The Ultimate Penalty * Release from Prison: Paroleshow more
