Corrections is an insider's guide to corrections today. It offers 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.
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. New material addresses such topics as reforming probation, the impact of sentencing reforms, and the experiences of transgender inmates. Case studies, career information and real examples expose students to the realities of working in corrections
