Prisons: Today and Tomorrow, Third Edition uses current case studies and research to present balanced and comprehensive coverage of prisons and prisoners. Featuring chapters contributed by leading authorities on the modern prison system, this text examines the many purposes of prisons-punishment, deterrence, rehabilitation, and incapacitation-and examines controversial issues such as whether imprisonment actually deters crime or merely serves as punishment.

Easy to read book and organized very well. The author is a professor of mine and is really a great instructor.
Arrived before classes as expected
I needed this book for a class, so it's not like I was buying a regular book just for fun. Amazon had the best price I could find. It arrived quickly in perfect condition.
Good textbook.
good condition.
Bought this for an Institutional Corrections class, and does a great job of explaining terminology from the text off to the sides for students to understand the content of the book!!!
Great and interesting book.
