Unwilling merely to sound the alarm, Petersilia explores the harsh realities .

Drawing on dozens of interviews with inmates, former prisoners, and prison officials, Joan Petersilia convincingly shows us how the current system is failing, and failing badly. Unwilling merely to sound the alarm, Petersilia explores the harsh realities of prisoner reentry and offers specific solutions to prepare inmates for release, reduce recidivism, and restore them to full citizenship, while never losing sight of the demands of public safety.

When Prisoners Come Home book. Drawing on dozens of interviews with inmates, former prisoners, and prison officials, Joan Petersilia convincingly shows us how the current system is failing, and failing badly.

Re-entry is the process of prisoners returning home after years of separation from their families, jobs, and community. In "When Prisoners Come Home," Petersilia not only describes parole and reentry, but also the impact the war on drugs has had on young people. In short: too many people to prison, too many prisoner returns, and in the end-too many lost lives.

Drawing on dozens of interviews with inmates, former prisoners, and prison officials, the book shows us how the current system is failing, and failing badly. The study also compares federal and provincial experience of reentry, showing how longer sentence and shorter transition period can affect community reintegration.

Largely uneducated, unskilled, often without family support, and with the stigma of a prison record hanging over them, many if not most will experience serious social and psychological problems after release. Fewer than one in three prisoners receive substance abuse or mental health treatment while incarcerated, and each year fewer and fewer participate in the dwindling number of vocational or educational pre-release programs, leaving many all but unemployable

When Prisoners Come Home. Parole and Prisoner Reentry. Studies in Crime and Public Policy. Petersilia's book presents a striking and rigorous synthesis of what is known (and not known) in the reentry literature.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of jailed Americans leave prison and return to society. Largely uneducated, unskilled, often without family support, and with the stigma of a prison record hanging over them, many if not most will experience serious social and psychological problems after release. Fewer than one in three prisoners receive substance abuse or mental health treatment while incarcerated, and each year fewer and fewer participate in the dwindling number of vocational or educational pre-release programs, leaving many all but unemployable. Not surprisingly, the great majority is rearrested, most within six months of their release. What happens when all those sent down the river come back up--and out?As long as there have been prisons, society has struggled with how best to help prisoners reintegrate once released. But the current situation is unprecedented. As a result of the quadrupling of the American prison population in the last quarter century, the number of returning offenders dwarfs anything in America's history. What happens when a large percentage of inner-city men, mostly Black and Hispanic, are regularly extracted, imprisoned, and then returned a few years later in worse shape and with dimmer prospects than when they committed the crime resulting in their imprisonment? What toll does this constant "churning" exact on a community? And what do these trends portend for public safety? A crisis looms, and the criminal justice and social welfare system is wholly unprepared to confront it.Drawing on dozens of interviews with inmates, former prisoners, and prison officials, Joan Petersilia convincingly shows us how the current system is failing, and failing badly. Unwilling merely to sound the alarm, Petersilia explores the harsh realities of prisoner reentry and offers specific solutions to prepare inmates for release, reduce recidivism, and restore them to full citizenship, while never losing sight of the demands of public safety. As the number of ex-convicts in America continues to grow, their systemic marginalization threatens the very society their imprisonment was meant to protect. America spent the last decade debating who should go to prison and for how long. Now it's time to decide what to do when prisoners come home.

Joan Petersilia’s text scrutinizes the criminal justice system (CJS) for its ability to reintegrate prisoners into society upon their release. Since almost all the imprisoned are eventually released, success must be predicated on returning them as productive, non-crime committing citizens. Petersilia demonstrates that instead of focusing on rehabilitation we have transformed each piece of the CJS into a tool for punishment which does nothing to reduce criminality.

The book provides a careful profile of returning prisoners, examines the historical developments that produced our current system, assesses whether it is achieving its goals, and offers a suite of alternative options.

Prisoners is a packed with well researched--though dated--information. Petersilia does a fine job exposing shortcomings and offers constructive suggestions for feasible changes. This book does a great deal to flip the punative paradigm that has driven policy in the American justice system for generations.

Unfortunately, her framework falls short in two ways.

First, the challenge of reentry reform is not simply within the CSJ. That is only one (essential) side of the equation. Additionally, we must also transform society into a more receptive community for those reentering. Shifting to this broader perspective requires us to view the imprisoned less as those threatening the peace, than as the ones most violently abused. The questions before us today are, What if their pathologies were merely the outcome of our pathologies? What if the ones who deserve punishment are us?

A second set of issues emerges because the dehumanization of prisoners is never adequately addressed. A narrow focus on “rehabilitation” disproportionately locates the problem within imprisoned people. They fail to account for the creative potential latent within human beings who have been reduced to criminals or to empower them as co-laborers toward a more just world. No other system so radically excludes those it most affects from contributing to its structure. Without addressing these oppressive paradigms, Petersilia’s cannot ultimately be a liberative approach (see Paulo Freire).

As with all systems, design choices emerge from the designer’s presuppositions. For the criminal justice system, a key presuppositional theme is anthropology: What are humans like? If there are simply “wicked people,” as influential criminologist James Q. Wilson argued, then the prison system’s best approach is to “set [criminals] apart from innocent people...to isolate and punish” (64). If, as my faith tradition believes, humans are most essentially those made in the image of God for whom Christ died to redeem, a far more restorative system is possible.

Every state that is trying to stop mass incarceration should read this book. It is filled with fact, figures and graphs supported by end notes of reliable studies. If you think mandatory sentences are God's gift to America, you would not understand the facts

I have only read half of the book, but as a 5 year volunteer in the Restorative Justice section of a State Prison I find the book very informative about reducing the Recidivism Rate, and activating prison reform.

I have a prison ministry for the last 10 to 11 years. Most of my knowledge has come from on hands learning but I need to always keep learning so I can keep helping.

Thank you for your quick response in sending me the book, I am in my final weeks of college and need to use ti to cite references, the book contains just the information I need to finish the project

This book was a recommended reading for my graduate course and I chose it for my term paper. Because change is inevitable, because it can be beneficial, and because it necessitates major adjustments for society, it is essential to provide the public with the learning tools with which to meet successfully the challenge of change when prisoners come home. I am quite happy to recommend this book for reading if you have family on parole or coming home from any prison please read it.

Used for resources. Very informative.
Written well. If you need clear understanding regarding heading home for inmates, this is my recommendation.
