Anatomy of Prison
In his preface, the author writes of his book that It is a description, not of life and work in prison, but of the attitudes to life and to work which a large local prison may engender. He asserts that the purpose of imprisonment should be the rehabilitation of offenders and the protection of society by preventing relapse into further crime.
