Fascinating, disturbing and timely!
Abu Ghraib is pictured on the cover - need we say more? When I bought this book, I got far, far more than I expected. It is NOT a voyeuristic spectacle. Instead, the book is a serious account of prisons in historical perspective. (The author wrote an award-winning book on the history of American prisons called With Liberty for Some - I highly recommend it.) Notorious Prisons is loaded with images and fascinating narratives. I couldn't put it down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
