Corrections in the 21st Century takes a practical approach to introducing students to the ideas and practices characteristic of modern corrections. It equips them with the skills necessary to succeed in the field. Its three-pronged approach to corrections includes a thorough description of correctional ideology, including professionalism, policy issues, and society's avowed goals for the correctional enterprise; a comprehensive overview of correctional practice, including the everyday operations of correctional agencies, prisons, jails, and the procedures of parole and probation; and the development of personal skills that are applicable to the corrections field. A central theme throughout the text is professionalism in corrections.

The Tutorial with Simulation Applications that accompanies the text is a browser-based version of the textbook on CD-ROM. It includes key words, activities, and review games. Simulations on the CD present real-world situations for students to apply chapter concepts. Student responses receive immediate feedback regarding the appropriateness of their responses.

I can't say that I can review the book- it was just a textbook needed for a class. I'm not sure that anyone needs to know how easy a book to read is that is required for a class. :-) But, the text books online are ALWAYS quick to arrive (usually two days) and are MUCh cheaper than the college bookstore. I also LOVE the Kindle editions since you can search parts of the books AND copy and paste the questions which means you do not have to retype them to turn them in. Great job, Amazon! I will keep purchasing text books again and again! :-)
This post is mainly for col on college students and not particularly the book itself.(although it is an okay read) ... Thank goodness for the companies and individuals who continue to sell these editions, that aren't the very latest, but I literally saved 100's of dollars by buying these older editions. I can probably say about 30 words were changed or rephrased... It is well worth the 4.00 to take the risk and compare it to what's going on in your classroom.. If you get it and can't follow along, at least you tried and you can get the newest within 2 days. But I have not found anything in a different order, or confusing at all. The only thing that cbanges are the current events and examples, but they are still understood by the stories themselves. Most great teachers don't mind and prefer that you're able to save money!!
For school, great book
One of the best textbooks I have read. Lots of photos and good information as well.My professor was the Director of Corrections for our county and he assigned it.
Good information, but the copy was pretty beat up. On the plus side, it saved me 300 buck vs getting the latest edition for my class.
Der Bat
rented it .................
returned it ...........
perfect solution for the $$$$ college books .....even though my son never read it ! :-(
Too much information to dissect. Did not really learn too much from the book. It was a good bit of money to purchase but did not really want to read, it wasn't interesting.
A book is a book
