Explore the American corrections system from the perspective of both the corrections worker and the offender in the newest edition of American Corrections. Comprehensive yet not overwhelming, the book covers both institutional and community sanctions in a balanced way.

Readers will appreciate the high-profile corrections cases taken from recent headlines, helping to reinforce the theories found in the book. American Corrections also examines topics such as assisting felons during the re-entry process, reducing recidivism, the death penalty, surveillance, and careers in the corrections field.


"I would describe this as the best, most comprehensive, up-to-date, student friendly text in corrections available."

"I adopted American Corrections because it is comprehensive, critical, colorful and contemporary. I am satisfied because of its coverage which helps me to provide students with the overview they need in a required class."

"I believe the book is one of the best books on the market to date. The book is insightful and does an excellent job of bringing the reader into the multifaceted world of corrections. The chapters on prison and prison culture are particularly interesting and highlight the complex nature of prison life."
