The punishment imperative : the rise and failure of mass incarceration in America by Todd R Clear( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 2,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last 35 years, the United States penal system has grown at a rate unprecedented in U.S. history, five times larger than in the past and grossly out of scale with the rest of the world. This growth was part of a sustained and intentional effort to "get tough" on crime, and characterizes a time when no policy options were acceptable save for those that increased penalties. In this book, the authors, both eminent criminologists argue that America's move to mass incarceration from the 1960s to the early 2000s was more than just a response to crime or a collection of policies adopted in isolation; it was a grand social experiment. Tracing a wide array of trends related to the criminal justice system, the book charts the rise of penal severity in America and speculates that a variety of forces, fiscal, political, and evidentiary, have finally come together to bring this great social experiment to an end. The book cautions that the legacy of the grand experiment of the past forty years will be difficult to escape. However the authors suggest that the U.S. now stands at the threshold of a new era in the criminal justice system, and they offer several practical and pragmatic policy solutions to changing the approach to punishment."--Publisher information
Harm in American penology : offenders, victims, and their communities by Todd R Clear( )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes the sources and results of the fourfold increase in the U.S. correctional population since 1970. It considers the following themes: – the value of punitiveness, defined as penal harm; – research on crime and criminals; – concerns about victims of crime, and; – concerns about community safety. It also analyzes the relationship between social problems, such as poverty and crime, and penal policy during the twenty-year period of penal expansion. The book concludes that the growth in corrections was not caused by crime, nor has it reduced crime, and that proposals for expanding incarceration cannot be justified

Imprisoning communities : how mass incarceration makes disadvantaged neighborhoods worse by Todd R Clear( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While the effects of going to and returning home from prison are well documented, little attention has been paid to the impact of removal on neighborhoods where large numbers of individuals have been imprisoned. In the first detailed, empirical exploration of the effects of mass incarceration on poor places, Imprisoning Communities demonstrates that in high doses incarceration contributes to the very social problems it is intended to solve: it breaks up family and social networks; deprives siblings, spouses, and parents of emotional and financial support; and threatens the economic and political infrastructure of already struggling neighborhoods. Especially at risk are children who, research shows, are more likely to commit a crime if a father or brother has been to prison. Clear makes the counterintuitive point that when incarceration concentrates at high levels, crime rates in that place will go up. Removal, in other words, has exactly the opposite of its intended effect: it destabilizes the community, thus further reducing public safety." "Demonstrating that the current incarceration policy in urban America does more harm than good, from increasing crime to widening racial disparities and diminishing life chances for youths, Todd Clear argues that we cannot overcome the problem of mass incarceration concentrated in poor places without incorporating an idea of community justice into our failing correctional and criminal justice systems."--Jacket

Community justice by Todd R Clear( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Community Justice discusses concepts of community within the context of justice policy and programs, and addresses the important relationship between the criminal justice system and the community in the USA. Taking a bold stance in the criminal justice debate, this book argues that crime management is more effective through the use of informal (as opposed to formal) social control. It demonstrates how an increasing number of criminal justice elements are beginning to understand that the development of partnerships within the community that enhance informal social control will lead to a stabilization and possible a decline in crime, especially violent crime, and make communities more liveable. Borrowing from an eclectic toolbox of ideas and strategies - community organizing, environmental crime prevention, private-public partnerships, justice initiatives - Community Justice puts forward a new approach to establishing safe communities, and highlights the failure of the current American justice system in its lack of vision and misuse of resources. Providing detailed information about how community justice fits within each area of the criminal justice system, and including relevant case studies to exemplify this philosophy in action, this book is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of subjects such as criminology, law and sociology.

The community justice ideal : preventing crime and achieving justice by Todd R Clear( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, some officials, sensing that the public is losing confidence in their actions, have changed their approach to fighting crime. They have begun to devote more attention and resources to building healthy communities where criminality cannot take root and to making citizens partners rather than adversaries of the criminal justice system. Many of these efforts have been successful and have inspired widespread imitation. But to date, this has been a movement without a philosophy, a set of experiments lacking a strategic model. ... Todd R. Clear and David R. Karp set forth a comprehensive plan for increasing public involvement in criminal justice practice. They show that doing so will not only reduce crime and fear of crime more effectively than "get tough" approaches, but will also help repair deteriorating social ties in communities across the country. In this way, they content, community justice practice can make an important contribution to improving and enriching American public life."--
The offender in the community by Todd R Clear( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With only a handful of exceptions, most convicted criminals will be released back to the streets, sometimes to live in the same communities where they were caught and convicted. Clear and Dammer's thought-provoking look at community corrections and the reality of "offenders among us" offers a full range of new and traditional approaches for safely bringing past offenders into the community. The Offender in the Community includes comprehensive, cutting-edge discussion of new sanctions and risk management. Standard approaches such as parole and probation are also covered."--Jacket

Todd R. Clear, one of the country's leading experts in the study of corrections, George F. Cole, considered by many as the 'founding father' of modern criminal justice study, and new co-author Michael D. Reisig, combine talents for the new Seventh Edition of the market-leading AMERICAN CORRECTIONS. A great author team, Clear's expertise in corrections complements Cole's organizational view of the system and fresh perspectives offered by Reisig. Together, they present a well-rounded, balanced approach to corrections. AMERICAN CORRECTIONS, Seventh Edition takes a sociological and humanistic approach to corrections. The text treats institutional and community sanctions in a balanced fashion and offers a look at the system from the perspective of both the corrections worker and the offender. It also presents the concept of corrections as a "system" of interconnected organizations and carries this theme throughout the book. From a more practical standpoint, many find this text appealing because it provides comprehensive coverage without overwhelming students. At 22 chapters and 592 pages, it is very compatible with standard semester-long courses
