Invitation to Corrections: With Built-in Study Guides
This new text invites students to look at corrections through a variety of lenses, to become involved in policy and practice as informed citizens, and to consider careers in corrections. This low cost paperback with a built-in Study Guide is a tremendous value! Students gain a balanced perspective on the realities of the corrections system, the people involved both inside and outside the system, and positive approaches to problems and solutions. Practical information, the lived experiences of individuals, and issues and ideas take center stage. A sociological approach helps students understand how the corrections system works in relation to social, cultural, historical, economic, and political contexts. -- Provided by publisher
