"While many criminologists study offenders, offending, and its consequences, fewer actually journey into the correctional world. Indeed, this is not something that researchers are actively encouraged to do in some academic realms. Throughout our careers, we have learned for ourselves many valuable--and sometimes painful--lessons. Sometimes we learned them through trial and error and other times we learned from researchers more experienced than we were. These are the kinds of lessons that are generally absent from textbooks and graduate-level courses--the kinds of lessons (or stories) that are often shared among scholars after hours over coffee or cocktails. We share these lessons in this book to help equip people with the knowledge we have accumulated in our combined sixty years of experience"-- Provided by publisher
