Hanser: Introduction to Corrections

Introduction to Corrections provides students with an understanding of basic concepts in the field of corrections. Designed for introductory corrections courses in criminal justice programs at two- and four-year schools, for both traditional ground and online settings, it offers comprehensive coverage of both institutional and community corrections, with particular emphasis on the perspective of the practitioner.



Students taking corrections classes often have wild misconceptions about prison work and the corrections environment - misconceptions typically derived from movies and the news, and even current textbooks. In this new text, Robert Hanser uses his own on-the-ground experience to colorfully explain how the corrections system actually works, and what it's like to be a part of it.



A practitioner, scholar, and experienced teacher whose research has focused on gangs, domestic violence, and corrections, Hanser introduces students to the correctional worker's complex world of sub-cultural norms, the impact of prisoner classification and assessment, and both the theory and legal elements affecting corrections systems today.



Davis: The Concise Dictionary of Crime and Justice

A handy reference for students, professionals, and anyone interested in criminal justice and criminology, The Concise Dictionary of Crime and Justice is an excellent, wide-ranging resource with clear definitions for over 2,000 key criminal justice terms. Often going beyond simple definitions, the dictionary presents and explains common misperceptions for selected entries.



The concise definitions of terms will be easily accessible to a wide audience3/4 from students in introductory courses to professionals looking to brush up on key terms. Some of the topics covered in entries include: abduction, cycle of violence, eyewitness testimony, facial reconstruction, habeas corpus, La Cosa Nostra, Nuremberg Principle, Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), typology, Walker spy ring, and zoophilia.
