This ebook, Recidivism in the Caribbean: Improving the Reintegration of Jamaican Ex-Prisoners (PDF), explores criminal recidivism and social reintegration in Jamaica in depth. It employs a variety of ways to gather authentic voices from convicts, deported migrants, ex-prisoners, and practitioners, as well as an unique study to look at aspects that may aid ex-prisoners in making a successful transition from prison to community life. Leslie also raises serious concerns regarding the Jamaican government’s ability to address the demands of detainees, especially given the fact that a substantial proportion of its residents are subject to forced repatriation to their homeland by foreign governments due to their crimes.
Recidivism in the Caribbean offers a unique perspective on institutional and communal life in a post-colonial society, while also connecting offender management techniques and theories. It will pique the attention of criminologists and sociologists who are interested in tertiary crime prevention, as well as those who are interested in correctional policy and practice, punishment, and deviance.
