Abstract

The newly formed Division on Corrections and Sentencing of the American Society of Criminology held a roundtable at its 2000 annual meeting. In the roundtable, titled “Corrections and Sentencing in the 21st Century,” prominent correctional researchers discussed their perceptions of the issues that will be important in corrections and sentencing as we move into the 21st century. The articles in this issue of The Prison Journal are based on the presentations given that day. In this article, the author reviews the changes that have occurred in U.S. corrections and sentencing philosophy in the past 30 years and discusses the evolving philosophy as we move into the 21st century.
