& Academics:
Community Based Corrections: A Text/Reader is a text-reader that includes a collection of carefully selected, edited articles on community-based corrections that have previously appeared in a number of leading criminal justice academic journals. This book is a substitute for a 'standard' community-based corrections textbook, without becoming 'standard' because it will include text and original articles along with current research. The book is divided into eleven Sections that will include 15 pages of authored text and 3-4 significant research-based articles with a policy orientation. The articles will provide the reader with a grasp of the development and current status of research on the various community-based corrections topics. Ancillaries include instructor and student resource sites. Instructors will be provided test questions and PowerPoint slides. Materials on the student study site will include self-study quizzes and extra articles for each section of the book.
