Summary

In this unique and extraordinary text, Michael G. Santos helps others learn about the abnormal way of life behind the walls and fences of prisons. To provide readers with a more complete and realistic picture of the growing subculture that exists in prison, the author provides both his own experiences and observations of living as a prisoner, as well as dialogues, vignettes, and profiles of other prisoners and workers within the prison environment. This text addresses the unprecedented growth in the prison system over the past two decades, and asks future correctional professionals to critically examine the current prison system.

Benefits:

  • First-hand accounts from prisoners and prison workers provide readers with a realistic picture of daily prison life.
  • Santos discusses the informal social structure of a prison, including the underground monetary system, bartering, sexual mores, working in prison, and interaction with the outside world.
  • The book discusses the correctional system process of prison admittance, prison transfer, punishment, and system administration.
  • Use of statistical information supports claims and illustrates key points.
  • This text can be packaged with any Wadsworth textbook at a significant discount. Please contact your local Thomson/Wadsworth sales representative for more details.
