Expanding options for criminal sentencing by Joan Petersilia( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes a number of new programs that have been developed nationwide in response to crowding in prisons and jails. Some of the programs are designed for adult, prison-bound offenders, most of whom are felons. Others are being used primarily as an alternative to jail for first-time offenders and misdemeanants. The formal programs described include intensive probation supervision; house arrest (with and without electronic monitoring); and shock incarceration, split sentences, and intermittent incarceration. Other innovations that can be used with the more formal programs include community-service sentencing; police-probation cooperatives and community network teams; residential diversion and revocation centers; client-specific sentencing; and victim/offender mediation. All of these programs are designed to be safe, punitive, and less expensive than prison, and the preliminary evidence suggests that they are diverting selected adult offenders to community-based alternatives, without threatening public safety

Television and human behavior : the key studies by George A Comstock( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some 450 studies and other items judged to be of key importance to research on television and human behavior are summarized. For empirical research, each summary presents: (1) principal findings; (2) design and methodology; (3) theory and discussion. For theory, review and nonempirical works, each summary presents: principal conclusions and theory and discussion. The summaries are described as critical annotations because they represent a judgment about the data or, in the case of nonempirical work, about the major thrust, and not a reiteration of stated conclusions. The summaries were rated by a jury of social scientists on the basis of "interest at this time," and their opinions are noted by a system of asterisks. In addition, the summaries are preceded by an analysis of methodological issues and trends within each of the substantive areas covered by the eleven specialized bibliographies. It concluded that many of the apparent disputes about the substantive scientific findings instead represent differences in the way various evaluators collate and analyze evidence, and that debate should be focused on the validity and implications of alternative means of evaluation, instead of on the "rightness" or "wrongness" of the findings.
