Overview

Based on the author's extensive experience as a senior New York State parole officer, this book features in-the-trenches practitioner's insights of the complex, "real" world of probation and parole.

Coverage ranges from history and administration; to sentencing and the presentence investigation; juvenile court, probation, institutions, and aftercare; prisons and community-based corrections; the indeterminate sentence and punishments; parole administration and services; theory and practice of rehabilitation; parole supervision; special problems and programs; and probation and parole in the Twenty- First Century.
