Product description


"Dr. Stinchcomb has written a comprehensive, yet eminently readable, textbook that takes a in-depth look at modern correctional practices....This is book that can be read in pieces and parts, or as a whole. The style she uses permits a ready understanding of the material and draws the reader into the deeper issues she poses at the end of the book." ―Don Leach, Editorial Board Member of the Americans for Effective Law Enforcement

"Jeanne Stinchcomb’s book makes an excellent contribution to the field of corrections serving as a substantial resource for those teaching corrections and as a practical inspiration for those students who will ultimately lead the profession. Stinchomb carefully crafts a balanced perspective that presents a powerful argument for why corrections is an important and necessary part of our criminal justice system while at the same time cautioning that justice can only be served when corrections is implemented with integrity and held to the highest of professional standards....This book will dare those who care about corrections to move beyond the ease of accepting the status quo to optimistically embracing the greater challenges of implementing a just and effective system of corrections." Faith E. Lutze, Ph.D., Washington State University

"This text is written in an easy to follow ‘building-block’ design along with measurable learning outcomes that facilitate instructional design. It also includes invaluable instructor support material with over 500 test questions, annotated websites, and PowerPoint slides―all written by the author and offering first-rate tools and support for faculty. Customizable and electronic versions are available for online and hybrid courses."―Kathy Dennehy, former Commissioner of Corrections, Commonwealth of Massachusetts

"Corrections immediately catches the attention of readers, providing a fresh approach to the subject matter, while also providing the pedagogical tools necessary to ensure learning. The author’s academic, professional, and assessment expertise are evident in the development and presentation of the book especially so noted when advancing novel topics. The text works well for traditional face-to-face instruction as well as for online or distance education."―Laura Moriarty, Vice Provost for Academic and Faculty Affairs, Virginia Commonwealth University

"Corrections is a comprehensive work that thoroughly covers the field. Stinchcomb not only provides updated material, but has taken the time to research the topics and concepts in depth making the text an ideal addition to any corrections course. She clearly presents the material in a format that promotes understanding of all aspects of the correctional system."―Susan Craig, Criminal Justice, University of Central Florida

"By examining the functions and structures of many differing types of correctional organizations and systems, Jeanne Stinchcomb has portrayed both the complexity of corrections and the difficulty of applying ready-made remedies to correctional problems and issues. This book is a must for criminal justice students, criminal justice professionals, and politicians who are serious about understanding correctional efforts and their outcomes."Stan Stojkovic, Criminal Justice, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

"This text is a welcome choice for those teaching corrections classes, written from the perspective of an instructor with decades of experience in corrections. The book is easy to read and filled with student-friendly features." ―Joycelyn Pollock, Criminal Justice, Texas State University

"Stinchcomb captures the reality of the social, political, and practical complexities of implementing corrections policy in a contemporary context. This book presents a well balanced, insightful, and intellectually challenging argument that will enhance the critical thinking skills of my students and will give valuable guidance as they move into their careers."―Faith Lutze, Criminal Justice, Washington State University

"Jeanne Stinchcomb is among the small group of Criminal Justice professors who has mastered the subject of corrections, covering the essentials and beyond. Her book is unique; it is comprehensive and stimulating, friendly and intriguing. And it is consistent with the latest research and experiments in the field of corrections."―Sam Souryal, Criminal Justice, Houston State University
