“I would and have told colleagues that this is the best text on corrections I have used. It is the text my students have used the most and complained about the least in the 15 or so years I have been teaching corrections. It is comprehensive without smothering the student in minutiae. The language is easily understood, but does not leave out terminology the student must know and understand. Great balance of affordability, utility, and acceptance by students.”
“A great introduction into corrections that covers the necessary material and helps students think critically about the issues within corrections.”
“This textbook is a must have and you will not be disappointed by the level of engagement that you will receive from the students. There are many add-ons that are relevant to the millennial learner and for this reason this textbook addresses all of their learning needs.”
“This book provides a comprehensive overview of the correctional system with specific attention to research. The additional resources and activities are designed to engage students with the material in a variety of ways.”
“This textbook is functional to both students and instructors. It is written well and easy to follow along with. The best feature of this textbook is the instructor and student resources provided throughout each chapter. This promotes student learning and development. I had nothing but success using this textbook and will continue to use it for my upcoming courses.”
I really choose this book to due the extensive topics that were included on prison populations of vunerable groups. Furthermore, it discussed most of the issues I want to discuss within my course.
