Significant Cases in Corrections

Second Edition

Craig Hemmens, Barbara Belbot, and Katherine Bennett

Criminal Justice Case Briefs

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.

New to this Edition:

  • Additional cases throughout including Graham v. Florida (2010), Brown v. Plata (2011), and Minneci v. Pollard (2012)
  • New discussion questions and a new glossary of key terms
  • New key excerpts from the opinions along with analyses and explanations
