Correctional Recreation: a Bibliography

Sponsored by Strength Tech, Inc.

We provide this bibliography to encourage dissemination of these materials and to assist further research in Correctional Recreation.

Note we have a separate page devoted to a Bibliography of Weight Lifting in Prisons. It covers papers related to the issues of lifting in prisons and articles on weightlifting in prisons.

This page is relatively lengthy. If you are searching for references in a specific area of correctional recreation (youth, juvenile, women, rodeo or Angola for rodeo, pet therapy, sport, art, movie, recreation for the mentally ill, old, etc) you might try having your browser search this page for those topics.

The phrase "NEWS-" indicates references from the news media, "THESIS-" indicates thesis or dissertation, MOVIE indicates a movie and "BOOK-" indicates a book.
NCJRS# refers to the paper number in the National Criminal Justice Reference Service abstracts database.

Correctional Recreation Serials (magazines) are listed at the bottom of the page.

Correctional Recreation Serials (magazines)

In recent years, the National Correction Recreation Association has printed two issues each annually of The Grapevine II and Correctional Recreation Today. Several years ago they printed four issues per year of a publication called Grapevine.

Way back in the 1940's a predecessor of the NCRA, the Regional Recreation Association of Correctional Institutions printed a quarterly at Rikers Island in New York. As the official publication of the Regional Recreation Association of Correctional Institutions, it was edited by Norman M. Stone and Herman K. Spector, Sept. 1941-June, 1942; and by Herman K. Spector, April, 1946. The publication was sponsored by the Department of Correction of the City of New York.
