Noting that the prisons and other areas of the corrections field have increasingly come under the rule of law since the 1960s, Smith (Michigan State U.) explains aspects of relevant law for current and future corrections officers, students of criminal justice, and citizens and voters interested in how their tax money is used and the mechanisms designed to keep the prisons operating in accordance with constitutional standards. He excerpts from cases and draws on news reports as well as legal material. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
