The book is good. Gives good historical information for corrections. However, there is a need for more up to date and realistic information on some of the "out sourced" private corrections.

Great seller and the book look new to me. The only thing I would say it about the cover. The seller did a great job for covering the book but if he/she used a color cover it will be great. That was not a big deal

I used this text in the first edition for the "Punishment & Corrections" class I teach at a local college. It has relevant research articles at the end of each chapter - easier for the students to find articles for papers.

This is your typical college book. I used the book for a corrections class and surprisingly referenced the book in multiple papers.
