Overview

Revel™ is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience—for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.


Brief. Affordable. Visual.
Corrections provides an affordable, thought-provoking look at corrections that uses clear writing and eye-catching visuals to get your students straight to the important concepts. By focusing on these core concepts, students will gain true understanding of the material, without becoming overwhelmed with unnecessary information. The text examines how evidence-based practices are used in corrections and how theory is linked to treatment and punishment of offenders. The book's conversation-starting pedagogy encourages active participation in learning, encouraging students to think critically about community corrections, prison life, treatment of offenders, reentry, legal issues, the death penalty, and juveniles in corrections.


NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
