Bundle: Stohr, Corrections free pdf We offer these texts bundled at a discount for your students! Stohr, Corrections: The Essentials Corrections: The Essentials, is a comprehensive, yet compact version of the typical corrections text. The text addresses the most important topics in corrections in a shorter format, while allowing for more accessibility through cost. It includes the usual topics typically found in corrections textbooks, from the history and development of correctional institutions, to the future of corrections. The book is designed for introductory lower and upper division corrections classes, or as a supplement to other corrections classes at the undergraduate or graduate level. Pratt, Addicted to Incarceration: Corrections Policy and the Politics of Misinformation in the United States In Addicted to Incarceration, author Travis Pratt uses an evidence-based approach to explore the consequences of what he terms America's "addiction to incarceration," highlighting the scope of the problem, the nature of the political discussions surrounding criminal justice policy in general and corrections policy in particular, and the social cost of incarceration. Pratt demonstrates that the United States' addiction to incarceration has been fueled by American citizens' opinions about crime and punishment, the effectiveness of incarceration as a means of social control, and perhaps most important, by policies legitimized by faulty information (e.g.,fear of crime is objectively linked to victimization, petty offenders mature into violent predators, and persistent offending can be accurately predicted over the life course). Analyzing crime policies as they relate to crime rates and U.S. society's ability to both lower the crime rate and address the role of incarceration in preventing future crime, the book shows students how ineffective our rush to incarcerate has been in the last decade, as well as offering recommendations and insights into the future of this problem.
