Alternatives to Incarceration: A Selected Bibliography.
Killoran, Katherine B.
The topic of alternatives to incarceration or community-based corrections is presented in a selected list of resources containing approximately 350 items. Included are English language books, articles, government documents, reports, dissertations and conference proceedings. Textbooks have not been included. The scope is international and currency a consideration in selecting material for inclusion: the most recent entry was published in July, 1995. Earlier materials have been included only when judged to be particularly useful. Accession numbers for materials which are part of document collections from the National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) and the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS) have been included when identified. An author index is provided, as is a list highlighting the international material. The bibliography is arranged into sections starting with works of a general nature. Following sections are: (1) shock incarceration or boot camps, (2) intensive supervision probation (ISP), (3) halfway houses and day centers, (4) fines and restitution, (5) probation, (6) community service, and (7) electronic monitoring and home detention. Items which address more than one of the above topics have been included in the general section. (TS)
