Prisons and Prison Life 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 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 further enriches the discussion and personalizes the issues. Topical issues such as private prisons, supermax prisons, and AIDS are also discussed.
