Book Description

American Corrections; 2nd Edition; (PDF) offers you an issues-oriented; contemporary introduction that covers every aspect of corrections; prompting you to think critically about complex issues that are affecting the current U.S. correctional system. Incorporating the most recent research; theory; and data available; the 2nd Edition encourages you to explore the most progressive and interesting developments in correctional policy and practice. Authors Susan Marchionna; Barry A. Krisberg; and Christopher J. Hartney draw from years of professional experience to give you a practical knowledge of corrections; as well as provide a framework for thoughtful analysis into what is plaguing the American correctional system and a realistic exploration of the solutions that could make a big difference.

New to the 2nd Edition:

 

 

    • Updated statistics; references; court rulings; and data help you understand the latest trends in correctional practices.

 

    • New Spotlight boxes introduce you to key issues such as immigration and detention and the opioid addiction epidemic.

 

    • Up-to-date coverage of today’s key issues reflects the latest developments in corrections; including the fiscal impact of corrections; reforms in corrections; and an expanded use of alternatives to incarceration.

 

    • Incisive exploration of policies proposed by the Trump administration shows you how the current administration’s approach differs from Obama-era sentencing reforms and encourages students to think critically about the potent impacts on the correctional system.

 

    • Debates around the effectiveness of corrections encourage you to think critically about problem-solving courts; probation; split sentences and flash incarceration; new recidivism studies; rates of racial and ethnic disparity in adult and juvenile corrections; and over-representation of youth of color in prisons.

 

    • Recent trends are discussed to give you a clearer picture of how the correctional system has transformed over the years; including the decline in the practice of incarcerating juveniles in large prisons; the rising incarceration rate for women; the treatment of mentally ill inmates; the increase of private prisons; and more.
