Additional Book Details

This book contains a unique approach to the study of corrections. The authors employ a narrative-based approach, in which they have written an evocative text built around and enlivened by the lived experiences of those who are heavily involved in the correctional system. Approximately 20 narratives are included from victims, offenders, individuals who are both victims and offenders, and professionals working within the system. For example, the authors provide narratives from incarcerated offenders, those who have been victimized, individuals serving a term of probation or parole, correctional officers and more.

This book represents an innovative approach to the traditional study of corrections that will give instructors an opportunity to make the essential concepts in corrections more relatable to students and provide a deeper level of humanity on this subject. The relationship between the text and the narratives of this book will help instructors improve students' critical thinking skills and their capacity to apply theory and empirical findings of research to the real world.

The study of corrections is vital to criminology/criminal justice but most corrections books can be quite lengthy. The goal of this book is to provide a stripped-down version of most traditional textbooks and provide a more affordable option for students while still conveying the core elements of corrections.
