About the Author

Todd R. Clear is the Provost at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. He is currently involved in studies of religion and crime, the criminological implications of "place," and the concept of "community justice." He serves as founding editor of the journal Criminology and Public Policy. Previous writing covers the topics of correctional classification, prediction methods in correctional programming, community-based correctional methods, intermediate sanctions, and sentencing policy. Clear has been elected to national office in the American Society of Criminology and the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. He has served as a programming and policy consultant to public agencies in over 40 states and five nations, and his work has been recognized through several awards, including those of the American Society of Criminology, the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, The Rockefeller School of Public Policy, the American Probation and Parole Association, and the International Community Corrections Association. Clear is the author of three books on community justice: COMMUNITY JUSTICE (Cengage Learning), WHAT IS COMMUNITY JUSTICE? (Sage), and THE COMMUNITY JUSTICE IDEAL (Westview). He is also author of IMPRISONING COMMUNITIES: HOW MASS INCARCERATION MAKES DISADVANTAGED PLACES WORSE (Oxford University Press).

This book gives you a great look at the American correctional system as it pertains to society today. I am a college student and needed this book for class...it was easy to read and the students (even those who hated class) found this textbook interesting.

The book was easy to read and understand. This book was bought for a criminal justice class and it was true to the lecture although many times I just wish the book was more detailed. Would I recommend this book? Honestly, for being my first criminal justice book, I would.

Purchased this book to enhance my Criminal Justice library. I am preparing to be an adjunct in CJ and wanted to have more books at my disposal for research and offering the students advice in the field.
