Presents major correctional issues, reviews the empirical research, and discusses the implications for policy. The 14 chapters approach the issues from theoretical and practical, legal and psychological perspectives of both the system and the individual (though they give no advice on escaping). Among the topics are rehabilitation theory, women, and prisoners' access to courts. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
