The book uses eight diverse case studies of prison riots to explore how the outcomes were affected by policies, procedures, management, communications, and strategy immediately before, during, and after the riot. Exploring the results achieved by negotiation, by force, and by simply waiting, the authors illuminate the factors most important in controlling the costs of damage and human suffering that can result from increasingly common prison disturbances.

To the reader,
I absolutely endorse the quality of the research that went into this book. I was working at SCI Camp Hill during these riots, and was involved with several of the key incidents mentioned in the timeline presented here.
This book is extremely detailed in both presentation and analysis, and the best of it's kind in scope.
