9780131188945: Probation and Parole: Theory and Practice

Take a look inside the real world of probation and parole.

 

Featuring a front-line practitioner's insights based on the author's extensive experience as a senior New York State parole officer, this text exposes students to the complex, “real” world of probation and parole. Comprehensive in approach, it explores the cutting-edge of both practice and theory with regard to all aspects of adult and juvenile probation, institutions, and parole.

 

“The text is well written, is easy to read and contains pertinent information. We have used this text exclusively since the second edition and do not have any intention at this point to adopt a different text.”

Jon Cella, Central Texas College

Review:


"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


From the Back Cover:

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.

New to this edition:

  • Material on supervising substance-abusing offenders
  • Additional material on supervising sex offenders
  • Additional material on supervising persons with HIV/AIDS

To remain cutting edge in the field, this edition continues to use materials from juvenile and adult probation and parole agencies throughout the country, providing state-of-the-art practices in probation and parole.
