Summary

Introduction to Corrections provides students with an understanding of basic concepts in the field of corrections. Designed for introductory corrections courses in criminal justice programs at two- and four-year schools, for both traditional ground and online settings, it offers comprehensive coverage of both institutional and community corrections, with particular emphasis on the perspective of the practitioner. Students taking corrections classes often have wild misconceptions about prison work and the corrections environment misconceptions typically derived from movies and the news, and even current textbooks. In this new text, Robert Hanser uses his own on-the-ground experience to colorfully explain how the corrections system actually works, and what's it's like to be a part of it.
