AUTHOR

Lin, Ann C.

SUMMARY

"Ann Chih Lin reopens the debate on rehabilitation while recognizing all the pitfalls that occurred under the concept of rehabilitation, such as indeterminate sentencing. She effectively uses implementation theory and aptly applies it to penal theory. Her book could become standard reading on penology and criminal justice in the United States."--Kathleen McDermott, Columbia University "Reform in the Makingis based on rich empirical detail from which the author constructs an account of rehabilitation programs in the specific context of prison life. The mundane realities of 'doing time' both as prisoner and as prison employee are carefully described. So too are the dilemmas of wrestling with the dual challenges of surviving and attaining some degree of satisfaction under daunting conditions. The book's case studies make a valuable empirical contribution to implementation studies, and especially to the growing body of work adopting a 'street-level' perspective."--Evelyn Z. Brodkin, University of ChicagoLin, Ann C. is the author of 'Reform in the Making The Implementation of Social Policy in Prison', published 2002 under ISBN 9780691095998 and ISBN 069109599X.
