Description

With recent sentencing laws changes at the state and national levels, the United States will continue to use long-term confinement more than any other nation in the world. In this authoritative volume, scholars, correctional authorities, researchers, and prisoners examine the use of long-term incarceration as a response to crime, the effects of long-term incarceration, and the strategies used by long-term inmates to adjust to confinement.,
