Prison Literature in America--the first full-length study of American prison literature--has become a landmark work in American cultural history, Marxist theory, and the relations between crime and art. This greatly expanded third edition contains much new material, especially on current prison literature, and the Annotated Bibliography of Published Works by American Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners has doubled since the 1978 edition.
