Description

Easily accessible to undergraduates, Significant Cases in Corrections, Second Edition, offers a clear, comprehensive introduction to corrections. Rather than providing complete opinions, which may overwhelm students, the authors present case briefs, along with analyses, explanations, and short excerpts.

In addition to the case summaries, the book includes lists of all of the cases it covers, both in alphabetical order and grouped by topic; a short introduction to each topic; and an index.

Reviews

"A great supplemental text. It's to-the-point and easy to understand. The inclusion of 'first-person' case language gives students a better understanding of each case. I have not seen a student-friendly approach of this kind in a legalistic text." --Jessie L. Krienert, Illinois State University

"Simple and easy to read. The book introduces students to the legal arena without overwhelming legalese. Very student-friendly." --Tom Powell, Paradise Valley Community College

"This book offers a unique approach. The authors' writing style is excellent, and the work is clearly well organized." --Michael Geary, Albertus Magnus College
