This illuminating reference makes available in one source an important collection of historical documents on prisons and corrections. Experts explore the reasons why prisons have remained virtually unchanged for centuries and the functions prisons are serving in social development today. The authors examine the history of many present-day practices and address a broad range of topics on the authoritarian and bureaucratic organization of prison life. Topics include the construction of prisons, prison riots, the prevention of prisoner suicide, education in prison, and much more.
