Living in Prison: The Ecology of Survival

Front Cover
This book illuminates the relationship that links environments to the persons who must live and work in them. By presenting the maximum security prison as a living environment, and illustrating the personal impact prisons have on individual inmates, Hans Toch, who is a psychologist with many years of research experience in "real life" settings, shows us how men adapt to stressful stimuli. He also provides a blueprint for reform--a practical solution to the problem of making prisons, and other settings, more effective and more humane.
