Beschreibung

Tackles the issue of imprisonment with the conventional wisdom on homicide, society's purposes of imprisonment, and offenders' reformability. This book reveals what happens to prisoners serving very long sentences in correctional facilities and what this should tell us about effective sentencing policy.

Students, scholars, public officials and the general public must read this book!" Randall G. Shelden, Criminal Justice, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
