Review quote

"This book contains a great deal of importatnt information about sentencing, corrections, and about national and international efforts with respect to crime control. It is clearly written and well organized. It includes articles by leading and authoritative researchers in the correctional field. Most importantly, the book makes a strong intellectual case for correctional policies, which are empirically driven rather than driven by ideology and partisan politics, and for the wider use of alternatives to incarceration, espcially for non-violent criminals."--The Law and Politics Book Review "This book contains a great deal of importatnt information about sentencing, corrections, and about national and international efforts with respect to crime control.
