Abstract

A decade and a half ago I wrote an article entitled The Demise of Corrections (Findlay 1988). The central thesis was that penal correctionalism had failed because it was piecemeal and lacked the support of a well developed commitment to alternative strategies to the prison. The criticism is sharper in the current context of imprisonment in NSW where correctional expectations continue to disappoint (and be disappointed), despite a recent revival of interest in 'what works' offender management programmes.
