Description 1 online resource.
Summary The alternative of community corrections has evolved to become a substantial part of the criminal justice and correctional system, spurred in recent years not so much by a progressive, humane philosophy as by dramatically increasing prison populations, court orders to 'fix' overextended prison settings, and an economic search for cost savings. This volume explores all aspects of the topic.
