Editorial Reviews

Choice
Thomas relies on numerous interviews both with prison officials and with prisoners to make his case, and he does it well....The documentation makes this work quite useful. The bibliography is extensive, and a case index as well as a regular index is included. This is a useful book for all college libraries, and it is essential to colleges offering extensive sociology, criminal justice, or philosophy programs. It would also be a valuable addition to public libraries.
Criminal Justice Review
Thomas uses a wide variety of tools to present his material....His book should draw an interesting audience of experienced practitioners, academicians, and students....This book will certainly provide an additional dimension to the literature of prisoners' rights.
Contemporary Sociology
