Focused on the major issues facing corrections today, this collection of readings analyzes the social context within which current American punishment philosophy and practice take place. Each chapter deals with a major topic, policy, or strategy that is currently generating debate in the correctional field, and varying points of view reflect the diversity of thought on each critical issue. The author of each chapter provides factual information and data on an issue or topic and then invites readers to step back and critically examine the impact of the correctional problem on the system or society.
