Boot Camps: An Intermediate Sanction
University Press of America, 1999 - Social Science - 169 pages
Boot Camps introduces to the criminal justice profession a general, but comprehensive look at this military style alternative to incarceration. The authors demystify this relatively unknown treatment program by closely tracing the history of the use of this military model in US prisons to its revitalization by contemporary correctional experts. Boot Camps provide the reader with theoretical and practical arguments regarding the implications underlying this sentencing option. It reveals the social, political, and economic contexts that resurrected this punitive, yet rehabilitative, approach to "getting tough" on crime. This book also reveals the effect that boot camps have on the crime rate, criminal offenders, public outcry, and strained correctional budgets. Using professional jargon in an easy-to-read format, the authors provide the general public with a better understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of boot camps.
