"I obviously like this text. It is as previously stated, 'a great text.' The author's background is excellent and it is written in a manner likely to assist the reader with the stated purpose of learning." — Larry D. Andrews, Missouri Western State College
"I find Professor Abadinsky's book to be a very well-written, theoretically-informed overview of probation and parole in the United States. The book's z3-year endurance is an obvious testimonial to its merits as an introductory text." — Robert P. Weiss, SUNY-Plattsburgh
"The approach Abadinsky takes is great. I like the fact that he starts the text with a review-type chapter that reinforces what students should have learned in previous classes. I think his approach is very good and students will appreciate his candor." — Steve Christiansen, Green River Community College
This text is appealing to both teachers and students because of Dr. Abadinsky's extensive probation and parole background.
The eighth edition has been streamlined and expanded into fourteen chapters, with some chapters reorganized.
