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.



Johnson: Experiencing Corrections

Written by scholars who have practical experience in corrections, the readable essays in this one-of-a-kind collection draw on real-world experiences to illustrate theoretical and methodological concepts and demonstrate approaches to corrections practice. Spanning the three general types of correctional environments-incarceration, community corrections, and juvenile corrections-the essays discuss working in prisons or prison systems, juvenile residential and community corrections, and probation and parole.
