The movement for prisoners' rights is based on the idea that prisoners, though they are deprived of liberty, are entitled to other basic human rights. What rights and privileges should be accorded to those who are incarcerated? This work examines this issue from different perspectives, incorporating excerpts from legal documents, and court cases.
