ESSENTIALS OF CORRECTIONS, Fourth Edition, introduces you to the essential elements of the U.S. corrections system without bogging you down in excessive detail or unnecessary technical jargon. Unbiased and accessible, the text includes coverage of the history of corrections, careers, alternatives to incarceration, probation/parole, race/ethnicity/gender issues in corrections, re-entry into the community, and more. The authors' unparalleled practical approach, reinforced by contemporary examples, not only helps you understand the role corrections plays in our society but also provides you with useful information about professional opportunities in the field.
