A Model of Correctional Leadership: Career of N. A. Carlson
This authorized biography of the fourth director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons describes the leadership traits that enabled Norman A. Carlson to direct the agency in an exemplary fashion during a time of great change and growth. Based on more than eighty interviews and an analysis of what makes the Bureau of Prisons work efficiently and effectively, this book identifies how Carlson was able to work with staff, inmates, Congress, and the judiciary. It explains how he handled riots, training (including the establishment of the National Institute of Corrections), the Witness Protection Program, and mentoring future leaders, and how in his retirement he still is playing a role in shaping the professionalization of corrections. It is an easy read and is filled with a fascinating history that will appeal to those who are interested in the development of corrections. A Model of Correctional Leadership is an excellent supplementary text for criminal justice and corrections courses in leadership and management.
