Turnstile Justice: Issues in American Corrections offers a unique, pragmatic approach to the "sociology of corrections." Drawing on the expertise of leading scholars and practitioners in the field of corrections and crime and criminology, this text offers the background necessary for a critical examination of the major issues facing corrections today. As a complement to an introductory text or a "stand alone" source for a variety of critical issues courses and seminars, the book presents current topics and policies or strategies that are generating debate in the correctional field.
