Rethinking Corrections

Rethinking Corrections
Rehabilitation, Reentry, and Reintegration

Edited by:

April 2010 | 448 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Rehabilitation, reintegration and reentry are immediate and pressing concerns in our society, as the rate of incarceration continually climbs. Recent activity in this field of study has generated an abundance of data which will inform and influence future policy. Rethinking Corrections is an edited text that will explore the challenges faced by convicted offenders over the course of rehabilitation and reintegration, and will meet the needs of upper level and graduate students as a primary text in required courses. The book's scope will span the earliest stages of incarceration (intake of risk and assessment), and extend through release into the community, including post-release supervision, employment concerns, healthcare and family life. Each of sixteen chapters will focus on a specific phase of the rehabilitation and reintegration process, using original, evidence-based text developed by contributors recruited for their expertise and reputation in their fields.

This book provides a good overview of corrections and is used in conjunction with another Sage title dealing specifically with community corrections. It provides greater context for the course. Specifically, it shows how community corrections functions inside the broader correctional system.

I will use as a reference book but as a stand alone text it is not comprehensive enough.

This book provdes an excellent opportunity for students to consider the terms of reentry and reintegration so important in today's criminal justice. It has been added to the reading list for students as a recommended reading as it provides a fantstic opportunity for students to draw comparatives between the two systems (UK and USA) and work on rehabilitation and the purposes of punishment.
