Corrections: The Essentials, Third Edition is a comprehensive, yet compact version of the typical corrections text. Authors Mary K. Stohr and Anthony Walsh address the most important topics in corrections in a briefer, full-color format, offered at a lower cost. It includes the usual topics typically found in corrections textbooks, but has a unique perspective with greater coverage on three key topics: the history and development of correctional institutions, ethics and diversity. The book also offers unique special feature boxes, allowing students and instructors the opportunity to focus on key perspectives to broaden the book′s coverage. The book’s brevity makes it an excellent core textbook that can easily be supplemented with additional reading materials.
“This is a great overview of the field of corrections. Focuses on the major schools of thought and provides a background for why the correction system is the way it is today.”
— Dr. Karin J. Storm
“I thought this text was pretty well laid out and executed. I really enjoyed all the various boxes in the chapters that helped to break it up some and keep it interesting. I like the instructor resources and those are always incredibly helpful.”
— Erin Graybill Ellis, M.A.
“Stohr & Walsh is a solid corrections text. The Essentials version of the text provides concise coverage of a broad range of topics relevant in Corrections courses and provides a number of pedagogical enhancements that augment the information provided in the text. The diverse topical coverage makes the text appropriate for a number of corrections courses and allows the professor to customize the student experience to fit their course needs.”
— Michael S. Caudy, Ph.D.
