Abstract:

"In this monograph, David Farabee critically reviews the most common forms of offender rehabilitation and outlines their underlying assumptions about the causes of crime (e.g., drug use, poor education, limited vocational skills, etc.). He contends that fundamental principles of deterrence, such as closer monitoring of parolees, swift application of sanctions, and indeterminate community supervision - the completion of which would be tied to the offender's performance - are in the long run far more humane than the progressive approaches that are becoming more popular today."--Jacket.
