These case briefs acquaint the reader with Supreme Court cases by summarizing facts, issues, reasons, and holdings.

Unique in perspective and exceptionally comprehensive in coverage, this book provides a complete “cutting-edge” overview of the entire field of corrections. Easy to read and extensively illustrated with quick- reference charts and graphs, it offers a balanced “insider's” (e.g., correctional employees, ex-offenders, inmates) view of how Corrections works in the real world — including the most current trends and controversies. Offers exceptionally strong coverage of jails, juvenile corrections, corrections management, and staffing, and provides pro and con explorations of all controversial issues and current trends. Examines high- tech innovations in Corrections — from ground-penetrating radar to telemedicine, smart cards, retinal image scanning, and variable threat lasers. Explores proactive approaches for reducing crowding, controlling inmates, and managing stress. Provides a review of what works in correctional treatment — from acupuncture and “pet therapy” to cognitive restructuring and therapeutic communities. Discusses current trends — in correctional accreditation, work-force diversity, security threat groups (prison gangs), and the skyrocketing costs of geriatric inmates. Features a chapter on legal issues and liability that covers topics ranging from Constitutional rights and landmark correctional cases to liability trends and employee drug testing to federal Legislation to curtail frivolous inmate lawsuits. Features unique “Close-up's on Corrections” — short, human interest profiles — often written in the words of ex-offenders, inmates, or correctional employees themselves. For corrections practitioners, government officials, and anyone interested in the recent developments, controversies, and trends in corrections today.
