Product description

The corrections system is probably the best known but least understood of public institutions. Everyone knows what a prison is, but not many know much about them, or that the prison is only a small part of the total system. Corrections Criminology is a groundbreaking examination of corrections systems --what we know; the key issues that need to be addressed now; and the issues likely to arise in the future.
