Summary

This comprehensive text, geared toward novices as well as experienced professionals in law enforcement, the courts, and institutional corrections, fills an important need in the study of community corrections. The author skillfully guides readers throughout the operation of community corrections, from pretrial supervision through the revocation process. Salient topics include: historical forces that shaped modern community corrections; its role within the criminal justice system; how it interfaces with the community, including its impact on innocent third parties; and the responsibilities of community corrections officers. Practical case studies address issues of integrity and human dignity; international foci illuminate community corrections practices in other countries; and literary foci provide new and insightful perspectives. Ideas for research papers are offered at the end of each chapter.
