First book!

Today is the day! My first book, The Meaning of Rehabilitation and its Impact on Parole: There and Back Again in California, is out! In this book, I trace correctional (and specifically, parole) related legislation dating back to the late 1800s to determine if embedded in the text is a meaning of rehabilitation for those under correctional control. I argue that rehabilitation, at least in the legislation, is much broader than is typically defined. I call for a rethinking of theoretical understandings of the corrections system, generally, and parole system, specifically, and call for an expansion in the questions asked in reintegration studies.
