Offender Rehabilitation Issues: Critical Lessons for Criminology, Criminal Justice, and Public Policy

Charles B. a. Ubah

Most of the studies that discuss offender rehabilitation focus on the debate over whether prison-based education programs work, ignoring the important issues that these programs undertake. Using a critical approach, Offender Rehabilitation Issues: Critical Lessons for Criminology, Criminal Justice, and Public Policy fills the gap by highlighting the offender rehabilitation programs that continue to divide scholars, policy makers, correctional practitioners, students, and the public. This book demonstrates and reaffirms that offender rehabilitation programs and recidivism rates are important and critical social issues that do not exist in a vacuum, are complex interacting social processes and issues with broader social, economic, legal, and political environmental forces and pressures
