  • Foundations of Offender Rehabilitationby Sharon Casey; Andrew Day; Jim Vess; Tony Ward

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 55.95

    The past three decades has seen dramatic changes in the way in which the criminal justice system responds to those who break the law. The old claim in the field of correctional psychology that "nothing works" has strongly been refuted in the face of evidence from rehabilitation programmes that do make a difference. The graduate student in forensic... more...

  • Explaining Criminal Careersby John F. MacLeod; Peter Grove; David Farrington

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 114.99

    Explaining Criminal Careers presents a simple but influential theory of crime, conviction and reconviction. The assumptions of the theory are derived directly from a detailed analysis of cohort samples extracted from the Home Office Offenders Index - a unique database which contains records of all criminal (standard list) convictions in England and... more...

  • Offenders or Citizens?by Philip Priestley; Maurice Vanstone

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 53.95

    The punitive prison currently dominates the practice of Anglo-American criminal justice, stigmatising its victims as perpetual 'offenders' and failing to change a majority of them for the better. Books of academic 'readings' sometimes profess neutrality over the controversies they invigilate. Offenders or Citizens? sits on no such fences, its pages... more...

Such penalties include a lifetime ban on receiving welfare and food stamps for individuals convicted of drug felonies as well as barriers to employment, child rearing, and housing opportunities. This much-needed work contains... more...

  • Desistance Transitions and the Impact of Probationby Sam King

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 155.00

    Moving away from criminal behaviour can be fraught with difficulties. Often it can involve leaving behind old habits, customs, and even friends, while at the same time adopting a new way of life. How do individuals go about making a decision to give up crime? How do they plan to sustain this decision? And in what ways does probation help? This... more...

  • Effective Interventions in the Lives of Criminal Offendersby John A. Humphrey; Peter Cordella

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    This book provides the most current thinking on effective interventions in the lives of criminal offenders. Original articles by leading criminologists provide in-depth analyses of â??turning pointsâ? in the desistance process experienced by criminal offenders.

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 36.00

  • The Ex-Prisoner's Dilemmaby Andrea M. Leverentz

    Rutgers University Press 2014; US$ 26.95

    Drawing on repeated interviews with forty-nine women newly released from prison, Leverentz explores the conflicting messages these women receive about who they are and who they should be?from prison staff, workers at halfway houses and drug treatment programs, family members, and friends.  These messages, she shows, shape the narratives the women... more...
