Beschreibung:

Wright provides evidence to show that prisons often achieve their goals in the deterrence of crime and in the incapacitation of dangerous criminals. His research findings and sentencing recommendations are unique in the field and important to all concerned with corrections and penology.
This examination of the effectiveness of prisons aims to show that prisons are moderately effective in achieving specific and general deterrance, and collective and selective incapacitation. It offers evidence that prisons are important social institutions and discusses sentencing measures.
