Popular Culture and Corrections researches the subject of popular culture and how it is created and able to maintain incredible influence over the public's perception of corrections. Freeman explores the complexities of negative correctional stereotypes and their origins. The book is divided into two sections. The first explores the negative public perception of corrections and the individuals employed in the field. The latter details the proposed antidote to the popular culture of corrections through educating the community and dismantling the negative correctional stereotypes. Corrections professionals will learn how to make a difference in forming the public's image of corrections.
