Jailhouse Journalism: The Fourth Estate Behind Bars
For over two centuries, members of the penal press (including Robert Morris; Julian Hawthorne, only son of Nathaniel; Charles Chaplin, famed city editor of New York's Evening World until he shot his wife) have produced publications that range from professionally produced newspapers and periodicals to crude journals printed on primitive equipment. At their best, jailhouse journalists have produced provocative writings that led the way for prison reform; even at their worst, these men and women have made the prison newspaper an important part of the facility's culture. The impact of the penal press and its journalists are fully covered in this unique work.
