Heres the product details from Amazon:
The United States has the largest criminal justice system in the world, with currently over 7 million adults and juveniles in jail, prison, or community custody. Because they spend enough time in prison to disrupt their connections to their families and their communities, they are not prepared for the difficult and often life-threatening process of reentry. As a result, the percentage of these people who return to a life of crime and additional prison time escalates each year. Beyond Bars is the most current, practical, and comprehensive guide for ex-convicts and their families about managing a successful reentry into the community and includes:
*Tips on how to prepare for release while still in Prison
*Ways to deal with family members, especially spouses and children
*Finding a job
*Money issues such as budgets, bank accounts, taxes, and debt
*Avoiding drugs and other illicit activities
*Free resources to rely on for support”

Crime, Shame, and Reintigration theorizes that societies with lower crime rates thoroughly shame reintegrated offenders thereby making them less likely to become repeat offenders.
There are two types of barriers that can hinder an ex-con’s successful reentry into society. There are those created by public policy and public attitude, and society’s lack of options for a reentering individual. However, in many cases, there are also those barriers that the person reentering creates for himself by lacking a plan, the right attitude, or the personal commitment to see it through. “How to Do Good After Prison” is a practical advice manual that provides insight and guidance to help ex-prisoners face the challenges and succeed after prison.
