Prisons and Prison Life investigates and analyzes prisons--and the often undocumented costs of imprisonment for all involved. It covers the history of imprisonment in the U.S. as well as all aspects of prison life, including profiles of prisoners, a description of life in prison, women's prisons, correctional officers, management issues, and re-entry. The use of first-person quotations throughout further enriches the discussion and personalizes the issues. The book is intended for courses on prisons, but is used frequently in courses on corrections as well.
