Description

Key Issues in Corrections is a fascinating book that critically analyzes the most important challenges affecting the correctional system in the United States. Jeffrey Ian Ross, an expert in the field, builds on his acclaimed book Special Problems in Corrections to examine both long-standing and emerging issues, grounding the discussion in empirical research and current events.

This fully updated edition integrates new scholarship, lawsuits, and the use of technology; introduces and evaluates new corrections policies and practices; and features two new sections, “The Privatization of Prisons” and “The Death Penalty,” as well as links to a companion website. Offering a no-nonsense approach to the problems faced by correctional officers, correctional managers, prisoners, and the public, this solutions-focused book will be a vital resource for students of criminology.
