For courses in Introduction to Corrections and Correctional Institutions. This text examines corrections not just from an academic view, but from those who are at the center of the system. It includes correctional history and theory, yet concentrates on what professionals do, why they do it, and the challenges they face every day. Unique integration of the authors experience sets the tone for this real-world approach and chapter case studies, career features, and personal interviews reinforce the theme. Now available with an accompanying DVD, the book shows students how corrections theory and research are put into practice and helps them experience the world of corrections from the inside.Richard P. Seiter is the author of 'Corrections: An Introduction (2nd Edition)', published 2011 under ISBN 9780132249058 and ISBN 0132249057.
