Summary

Covers the full range of topics found in a corrections course in the most practical and easily-accessible manner of any text on the market. Corrections was written as a response to those faculty who are frustrated with the level of rigor and detail now found in other Corrections texts. Kären Hess is well-known for creating exceptional pedagogical aids; this text utilizes tools that reinforce and enhance student learning. Her reputation as an author who makes criminal justice content accessible to all types of students is continued and enhanced with this exciting new text.

  • Includes extensive and persuasive use of pedagogy including opening quotations, "Do You Know?" sections, "Can You Define?" sections, introductions, key terms, quotations, summaries, discussion questions, references, and cases.
  • Presents a thorough integration of theory and application. All the famous theorists are included, as well as quotations from personnel and inmates in correctional institutions. This combination gives students an accurate feel for corrections today.
