Prisons and Prison Life

Costs and Consequences
  • By Joycelyn M. Pollock
Prisons and Prison Life: Costs and Consequences, Second Edition, investigates and analyzes prisons--and the often undocumented costs of imprisonment for all involved.
Beginning with a short history of imprisonment in the U.S., the text covers all aspects of prison life, including a description of life in prison from the point of view of both inmates and officers, inmate rights, women's prisons, prison programs, and re-entry.
Rich pedagogical features help students absorb information, while end-of-chapter review questions stimulate lively class discussions. Quotations from inmates allow students to personalize the issues.
Offering a lucid, critical, yet balanced look at American prison life, this volume is ideal for courses on prisons and corrections.
* Expanded discussion of the rapid growth of incarceration over the last few decades
* Updated data and statistics throughout
* Includes the most current research on prison sexual assault
* New online resources for further reading
