Summary

In this unique and extraordinary book, Michael G. Santos helps others learn about the abnormal way of life behind the walls and fences of prisons. To provide readers with a more complete and realistic picture of the growing subculture that exists in prison, the author provides both his own experiences and observations of living as a prisoner, as well as dialogues, vignettes, and profiles of other prisoners and workers within the prison environment. This book addresses the unprecedented growth in the prison system over the past two decades, and asks future correctional professionals to critically examine the current prison system.
