Todd R. Clear, a leading expert in the study of U.S. corrections, George F. Cole, considered by many as a founding father of modern criminal justice study, and coauthor Michael D. Reisig combine their talents in the new eighth edition of the market-leading AMERICAN CORRECTIONS. This premier author team brings you Clear's expertise in corrections, complements it with Cole's organizational view of the system, and offers Reisig's fresh critical perspective. The result is a well-rounded, balanced approach to corrections. Taking a sociological and historic approach to corrections, the text treats institutional and community sanctions evenhandedly, looking at the system from the perspectives of the corrections worker as well as the offender. It also presents the concept of corrections as a system of interconnected organizations and carries this theme throughout the book. High-profile corrections cases taken from recent headlines and integrated coverage of career options in the field demonstrate the real-world relevance of the theories, concepts, and policies presented in the text for students. Finally, many instructors consistently choose Clear/Cole/Reisig because it provides comprehensive coverage without overwhelming students. At 23 chapters and 608 pages it is very compatible with standard semester-long courses.
