About the Book

Correction has been defined as a social process by which modern society deals with law-breakers as members of the community in a temporary handicapped status. Thus, correction stands for positive programmes of reformation of social deviants for their ultimate reintegration as useful members of society. With this background present day thinking is that men are sent to prison as a punishment and not for a punishment.

The present Book investigates into the scope of reformation of prisoners under the existing prison laws in India. The study reveals that there are clear indications of progressive developments in the jails. The jail administration as depicted in the book re-established that prison Management must be based on a basic appreciation of the ways and means by which prisoners as individual human beings can be helped to improve their skills, habits, attitudes and approaches towards life.

The book would serve as an important resource material for prison functionaries, teachers, researchers and students of criminology, sociology, social work and law.
