Overcrowded prisons and the high cost of incarceration are among the most complex issues surrounding the public debate about reform of the criminal justice system. In this volume, leading experts on sentencing and corrections policy focus on intermediate sanctions designed to reduce the U.S. reliance on prisons. Selected from the highly-regarded and influential journal Overcrowded Times, the essays evaluate major innovative programs such as conflict mediation, financial penalties, community service, electronic monitoring, day-reporting centers, and boot camps.
