“Complete, up to date, engaging text with unique features making it appropriate for either face-to-face or online courses in contemporary corrections.”
“It is a thorough and focused work on American corrections providing a solid opportunity for students to learn not only how the correctional system works but also to understand its ever increasing complexities.”
“This book is not too thick that students would feel over whelmed by purchasing it or discouraged from reading.”
“I would (and have) highly recommended this text to colleagues because of its direct, comprehensive approach to critically evaluating the current landscape of the American correctional system. I would also mention the critical lens through which the text is written, and emphasize the importance of this perspective as students become educated in the area of corrections.”
“Provides thought-provoking and well-cited sidebars and extensive and helpful supplemental pedagogical resources.”
There were a few issues that the book lacked in terms of important cases realtes to certain aspects of corrections that I cover in my classes. I just felt that the Hanser corrections book is better suited for my course and its objectives.
