"Mass imprisonment and mass prisoner reentry are two faces of the same coin. In a comprehensive and penetrating analysis, Daniel Mears and Joshua Cochran unravel the causes of this pressing problem, detail the challenges confronting released prisoners, and provide an evidence-based blueprint for successfully reintegrating offenders into the community. Scholarly yet accessible, this volume is essential reading―whether by academics or students―for anyone wishing to understand the chief policy issue facing American corrections."-- Francis T. Cullen
"Mears and Cochran have produced a terrific book that is both comprehensive and accessible. By placing reentry in the particular American context of mass incarceration, they have made an important contribution to the contemporary debate about penal policy. If you only want to read one book about today’s American penal system and its challenges for reentry, read this one."-- Todd R. Clear
"In Prisoner Reentry in the Era of Mass Incarceration, Mears and Cochran confront the absurdity and human toll of America’s mass incarceration project and serve up provocative questions, serious scholarship, and clear-minded proposals for a new approach to reintegrating offenders into society. If we take seriously prisoner reentry, and we should, Mears and Cochran have given us the field manual." -- Brandon C. Welsh
"Excellent book. It is timely, current, cogent and the authors make compelling arguments. The authors do a fine job of putting into perspective the challenges of re-entry and debunking myths related to reintegration. I will highly recommend the book." -- Robert Bing
"I like its comprehensive nature. Many of the observations offered bode well with the example and stories that I draw upon in class – many from my own experience."-- Curtis R. Blakely, Ph.D.
"My overall assessment of the text is that it is ‘outstanding’. The information is well organized, the content is exceptional and it is appropriate for undergraduate students."-- Professor Joanne C. Metzger, J.D.
