Rather than offering a cookie cutter how-to manual for correctional managers, Seiter (criminal justice, Saint Louis U.) emphasizes the differences between leadership and management; provides research, theoretical, historical, and philosophical contexts for corrections practice; and strives for positive, observable outcomes for the incarcerated via a vision and strategic plan. He also covers prison basics; programs and services; security issues; staff management and empowerment; dealing with escalating costs; and future trends, including experimental criminology and a renewal of rehabilitative ideology. Chapters include experiential and Web-linked exercises.
