Offering readers a closer look at the US corrections systems, American Corrections by Todd R. Clear, George F. Cole, and Michael D. Reisig provide a thoughtful investigation on incarceration in the United States, giving students a multifaceted look at rehabilitation and punishment for individuals who commit offenses and other felonies. The authors use the perspective of an offender and a corrections worker to provide a compelling and easy-to-read reference for political science majors, as well as criminology students. It has been updated with chapters on prison culture to emphasize the complexity of prison life. Throughout the text, readers are provided with a balanced and unbiased look at the community and institutional sanctions involved in American incarceration. American Corrections (ISBN 9780495807483) integrates the most recent high-profile cases to demonstrate how theories are applied in real situations. Author Todd R. Clear and co-authors George F. Cole and Michael D. Reisig start by explaining the correctional context, covering the corrections system, the history of correctional practice and thought, and the history of corrections in the United States. They move on to correctional practices, tackling incarceration (with a special section on incarceration of women) and the prison experience. They also discuss correctional issues and perspectives, dwelling on controversial topics like the death penalty, how ethnicity and race play a role in corrections, and community justice. The theories shared in this textbook are tied to the recent headlines that have made as significant impact in society and challenged the US correctional system. The text is divided into 3 parts: correctional context, correctional practices, and current issues faced by the correctional system. The three authors end the book with an insightful discussion of present-day and future US corrections.
