Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... PRESIDENT'S ANNUAL ADDRESS. SOME ESSENTIALS OF CONSTRUCTIVE CRIMINOLOGY. DAVID COOMBS PEYTON, M. D., SUPERINTENDENT STATE REFORMATORY, JEFFERSONVILLE, INDIANA. These are the most chaotic and momentous years perhaps in the whole history of man. This epoch is either the beginning or the ending of civilization. The seething torrent of the social maelstrom is compounded of all the forces in life, ethical, material, economic, social, and all others that can be moved by human agency. We are now in the final struggle between autocracy and democracy, between idealism and materialism, between force and justice, between might and right, between good and evil, and this cataclysm has been precipitated by the mad ambition of one man--a regal neuropath, an hereditary degenerate. Its righteous ending, which no man can doubt, will leave the world topsy-turvy but sane and incomparably richer spiritually and mentally. Thinking men cannot have failed to note for some years the abnormal symptoms in the body politic. The unhealthy sentimentality, crass creeds, mountebank philosophy, loud mouthed political fakers with cure-all nostrums for the public weal. All these betoken a disease state. In the new renaissance, when peace shall have settled down over the earth, out of the horror of these turbulent years among the many evidences of improvement let us hope and believe will be a rejuvenation in the science of prison management, and this science must be founded upon the great underlying fundamental--common sense. The ideal prison will not so quickly appear, for indeed, in real life the ideal is never attained. Progress is measured in degree approximation to the ideal but the supreme end--the summum bonum--is never reached. In prison management there have...

Description : Explore the relationship between faith-based programs, religion, and offender rehabilitation! This book reports on current research from several disciplines to help the reader understand the nature and impact of the relationship between faith-based programs, religion, and offender rehabilitation. Religion, the Community, and the Rehabilitation of Criminal Offenders is a unique resource—there has been very little research published on this important topic. President Bush's faith-based initiative recognized that religion plays a role in the justice system and corrections that is overlooked but essential—it increases the role of community and caring in the system in a unique and important way. This pathbreaking book points the way toward a system of faith-based programs that are not only effective but also economical, as these programs are often staffed by volunteers. Religion, the Community, and the Rehabilitation of Criminal Offenders addresses important questions regarding the importance and effectiveness of faith-based rehabilitation programs, including: What is the relationship between prison religion and offender rehabilitation? What motivates inmates to become involved with religious programs and activities? What is the prison chaplain's role in rehabilitation? Are certain religious denominations more effective than others in preventing crime, delinquency, and recidivism? How does religious activity help inmates adjust to the prison environment? What do inmates have to say about the religious programs they encounter within the system? How did Islam develop within American correctional institutions and what changes has the movement gone through in recent years? Why do female African-American inmates tend to resist conversion to Islam while their male counterparts embrace the Muslim faith in increasing numbers? How can sacred texts and social theory be utilized as teaching tools and intervention strategies in the transformation processes of men incarcerated for violent crimes? (A fascinating study from the Sing-Sing prison) and more!
