"Correctional Contexts unites some of the most important classic and contemporary works in corrections. Assigning this book as a stand-alone anthology or as a supplement to a corrections text brings the usually dry textbook material to life for students. It also fosters in students a deeper appreciation for the many issues facing our correctional system today. Perhaps as importantly, the book provides an historical context that allows students to come to terms with the reality that many of the issues and debates in corrections have a long and storied heritage."--Natasha A. Frost, Northeastern University
"This book is a well-organized collection of contemporary and classical readings that provides students with a broad understanding of issues surrounding correctional institutions in the United States. I like the wide range of topics that it covers and feel it is more comprehensive than many of the other texts I have considered. I also like the ability to expose students to original works in a manner that is appealing to them."--Deborah Koetzle Shaffer, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
