This new addition to the Pro/Con series depicts what prison life is like and explores the controversy surrounding the purpose of prisons -- whether they are for punishment and/or rehabilitation. This book also provides a chilling account of what the families of both prisoners and victims experience. Andy Hjelmeland writes with special insight about prisons because he spent much of his early life behind bars.
