Case Studies in Corrections invites the reader to analyze hypothetical situations confronted by judges, probation officers, inmates, correctional officers, counselors, clerics, and administrators. Concise but thorough introductions to each section provide background for assessing the scenarios. Thought-provoking questions stimulate reflection about possible courses of action and the potential consequences of choices made. The Sixth Edition encourages an interactive approach—whether rethinking effective punishment, analyzing the role of the community in corrections, or addressing ethical and legal issues.
