Book Description

This ebook Recidivism in the Caribbean: Improving the Reintegration of Jamaican Ex-prisoners (PDF) provides a detailed and practical exploration of criminal recidivism and social reintegration in Jamaica. It uses various methods to seek the authentic voices of inmates; deported migrants; ex-prisoners; and practitioners; drawing on an original study to examine factors that might help ex-prisoners more successfully transition from a prison environment to live within the community. Leslie also raises important questions about the Jamaican state’s capacity to meet the needs of inmates; particularly as a large number of its citizens are subject to forced repatriation to their homeland by overseas jurisdictions due to their offending.

Recidivism in the Caribbean provides a unique insight into institutional and community life in a post-colonial society; whilst linking practices theories of offender management. It will particularly appeal to criminologists and sociologists interested in tertiary crime prevention but also those interested in correctional policy and practice; punishment; and deviance.
