    As prison populations increase in Australia and worldwide, this book presents a stocktake of what we know about corrections. It encompasses corrections in the community as well as private and public prisons, and is written by leading academics and senior practitioners.

    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.
