Elaine Gunnison publishes new book

Elaine Gunnison, professor of criminal justice, has a new book Community Corrections. Published by Carolina Academic Press, the book is described, in part, as follows: 

“With millions of offenders serving community corrections sentences each day in the United States, the topic of community corrections could not be more important than it is today. This text provides a detailed exploration and examination into the journeys of community corrections offenders. Moving beyond other texts on this subject, this book examines the literature on all types of community corrections offenders—not just probationers and parolees—as well as offender reentry experiences for all types of offenders (i.e., adult and juvenile). Additionally, discussion of the role of gender, race, and social class is included in the context of explaining experiences and how various factors and programs can contribute to, or stifle, successful offender reintegration.” 

This is the fourth book Gunnison has authored or coauthored. She currently is coauthoring a book with Jacqueline Helfgott, professor and chair of criminal justice.
