Corrections: A Critical Approach

Routledge, 2011

By: 

Corrections

Welch's Corrections is the only text to take a critical approach to the field of corrections. This unique and refreshing text encourages students to think analytically about punishment. By establishing a greater social context, corrections is presented against the backdrop of social forces -- namely, political economic, religious, and technological forces that affect the corrections system. Students gain an understanding of the corrections system through the author's critical and issues-oriented presentation of materials. The book consistently introduces clear, meaningful, and exciting examples illustrating various issues and concepts.
