Description
For introductory courses in corrections.

Corrections: An Introduction is a realistic practical account of modern corrections that draws on the author’s three decades of service in the system. While he addresses history and theory in each chapter, Seiter focuses mainly on the actual operations of prisons, community corrections, and jails, as well as contemporary challenges for correctional staff and administrators. Case studies, career information, and real examples expose students to the realities of working in corrections. The 6th edition has been updated with the most recent data on correctional populations and costs, as well as new research and findings affecting correctional policy.
