This collection of contemporary readings offers a frank exploration of corrections in the United States today. This ground breaking book explores issues in corrections by touring the underside of prison life, issues in prison administration, and the most hopeful alternatives to incarceration. The book presents contrasting views on what is needed to improve corrections, including: more control -- or more inmate participation -- or more and better alternatives to prison. Selections highlight current issues, including some of the hottest topics in today's headlines: Who gets convicted and punished?; Living and Working in Prisons and Jails; Do Prisons Work?; Do Alternatives to Prison Work Better? For anyone interested in the corrections aspect of law enforcement.
