From 1976 to 1994, he taught criminal justice courses at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, serving for many years as a tenured full professor. For the last 16 of those years, he chaired the Department of Sociology, Social Work, and Criminal Justice. As an adjunct professor with Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri, Dr. Schmalleger helped develop a graduate program in security management and loss prevention that is currently offered on U.S. military bases around the world. He taught courses in that curriculum for more than a decade, focusing primarily on computer and information security. Dr. Schmalleger also has taught in the New School for Social Research online graduate program, helping build the world’s first electronic classrooms for criminal justice distance learning.

Dr. Schmalleger is the author of numerous articles and many books, including Criminal Justice Today (Prentice Hall, 2011), Criminal Justice: A Brief Introduction (Prentice Hall, 2010), Criminology Today (Prentice Hall, 2009), and Criminal Law Today (Prentice Hall, 2011). He is founding editor of the journal Criminal Justice Studies (formerly The Justice Professional ) and has served as imprint advisor for Greenwood Publishing Group’s criminal justice reference series.

His coauthored data set Executions in the United States, 1608–2003: The Espy File is one of the most frequently requested criminal justice data files from the University of Michigan’s Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research.

Dr. Smykla has published more than 40 research articles on corrections issues, including “The Human Impact of Capital Punishment,” “Effects of a Prison Facility on the Regional Economy,” “Jail Type and Inmate Behavior,” “Juvenile Drug Courts,” and, most recently, “Correctional Privatization and the Myth of Inherent Efficiency.” Dr. Smykla has delivered more than 50 conference papers in the United States and abroad.

Schmalleger's philosophy of both teaching and writing can be summed up in these words: "In order to communicate knowledge we must first catch, then hold, a person's interest--be it student, colleague, or policymaker. Our writing, our speaking, and our teaching must be relevant to the problems facing people today, and they must in some way help solve those problems."

I'm using this textbook in my community college course on corrections -- and I can't image how any book could be better. The book is built around a theme of professionalism in corrections and makes me want to work as a corrections officer -- and makes me want to improve the field. If you are interested in a career in corrections this book is for you -- whether or not you are currently in school.

This post is mainly for col on college students and not particularly the book itself.(although it is an okay read) ... Thank goodness for the companies and individuals who continue to sell these editions, that aren't the very latest, but I literally saved 100's of dollars by buying these older editions. I can probably say about 30 words were changed or rephrased... It is well worth the 4.00 to take the risk and compare it to what's going on in your classroom.. If you get it and can't follow along, at least you tried and you can get the newest within 2 days. But I have not found anything in a different order, or confusing at all. The only thing that cbanges are the current events and examples, but they are still understood by the stories themselves. Most great teachers don't mind and prefer that you're able to save money!!

Too much information to dissect. Did not really learn too much from the book. It was a good bit of money to purchase but did not really want to read, it wasn't interesting.
