This text explores the challenges that convicted offenders face over the course of the rehabilitation, reentry, and reintegration process. Using an integrated, theoretical approach, each chapter is devoted to a corrections topic and incorporates original evidence-based concepts, research, and policy from experts in the field, and examines how correctional practices are being managed. Students are exposed to examples of both the successful attempts and the failures to reintegrate prisoners into the community, and they will be encouraged to consider how they can help influence future policy decisions as practitioners in the field.

Meet the Author

Lior Gideon, PhD, is a Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. He specializes in corrections-based program evaluation and focuses his research on rehabilitation, reentry, and reintegration issues and in particular by examining offenders’ perceptions of their needs. His research interests also involve international and comparative corrections-related public opinion surveys and their affect on policy. To that extent, Dr. Gideon has published several manuscripts on these topics, including two previously published books on offenders needs in the reintegration process: Substance Abusing Inmates: Experiences of Recovering Drug Addicts on Their Way Back Home (2010, Springer), and Rethinking Corrections: Rehabilitation, Reentry, and Reintegration (with Hung-En Sung, 2011, SAGE). His other works were recently published in The Prison Journal, the International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology, and the Asian Journal of Criminology. Dr. Gideon earned his PhD from the Faculty of Law, Institute of Criminology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Maryland’s Bureau of Governmental Research.

Hung-En Sung was appointed associate professor at John Jay in 2006. He received his Ph.D. in 2000 and M.A. in 1993 from the U. at Albany, SUNY. In 2007 he was awarded both the Recognition for Outstanding Scholarly Achievements – The City University of NY and Faculty Scholarly Excellence Award from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He has served as a research associate for five years in the Division of Policy Research and Analysis at the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University. In the area of substance abuse policy, Professor Sung has researched on the therapeutic process and the outcomes of mandated drug abuse treatment, on the diversion and treatment of chronic offenders with co-occurring disorders, and the role of faith-based treatment in American society. His comparative research has revolved around the impact of democratization on political corruption and the administration of criminal justice. He has published extensively on these issues in many top journals. He authored The Fragmentation of Policing in American Cities (2002, Praeger) and is the co-editor of Crime and Punishment Around the World: Vol. 2 The Americas (Praeger).
