Description

Objective, comprehensive, and completely up to date, the best-selling COMMUNITY-BASED CORRECTIONS, International Edition provides an excellent introduction to the procedures, practices, and personnel involved in community-based corrections. Readers learn about the wide array of effective punishments and treatment programs that constitute alternatives to incarceration as the text examines numerous programs--including probation, parole, electronic monitoring, house arrest, day-treatment centers, boot camps, restitution, and fines--designed to meet the level of risk and needs posed by each individual. The book's balanced approach reflects a strong emphasis on practical and legal matters, and places the programs in their historical, philosophical, social, and legal context. In addition, input from professionals in the field gives students invaluable insight into real-world practice.
