From the Publisher
"Profiles from Prison makes an important contribution to prison community literature and adds to the corpus of information about federal prisons. Written in journalistic style, it is accessible to a wide audience….[t]his book should be read by the lay public, legislatures, and employees of the criminal justice system in order to see prisoners as human beings….As a society, we have a moral and economic responsibility to do things differently. Profiles from Prison clearly and emphatically illustrates this point."
Criminal Justice Review
"Santos offers a fascinating, authoritative mosaic of prison life. Other prisoner writings tend to be self-serving memoirs or rants against the system, but Profiles has an objective viewpoint and a unique structure—19 profiles or people from various backgrounds with a variety of sentences and times served."
