Review:

REVIEW OF THE LAST EDITION

"A necessity for all health professionals working in correctional settings. I also recommend it for use in medical schools and schools of public health and health administration. The challenges described are so fascinating and the standards of clinical care and professional behavior presented are so high that the book will attract students to this important field of health care."―JAMA
