Inhaltsangabe: Book by Lesce, Tony
From Library Journal:
Author Lesce has written an insider's guide to American prisons from the viewpoint of the security personnel. "We're going to discuss prison conditions as they are, not as ivory-tower theorists would like them to be," he says. The book is written in an easy-to-read style, in outline form, with a message that has a cutting edge. After giving a brief college term-paper-like history of prisons, and an introduction to inmates, Lesce describes how a successful corrections staff controls inmates through methods as diverse as verbal confrontation and lobotomy. How does he advocate ending criminal careers? Try speeding up executions and using the bodies for organ transplants. For readers who want such an approach, this may serve. For a more objective look at correctional staff, and a kinder point of view, see Lucien Lombardo's Guards Imprisoned: Correctional Officers at Work (LJ 7/1/81) or Susan Sheehan's A Prison and a Prisoner (LJ 5/1/78). Not an essential purchase.

Buchbeschreibung Loompanics Unlimited. PAPERBACK. Buchzustand: New. 1559500751 Bursting at the seams, our prison system is in a state of crisis. Many prisons are under court order to reduce overcrowding. New drug laws and mandatory sentencing requirements only add to the problem. There's no place left to put criminals except back on the street. The solutions don't come easy. Who should be let out early? Who should stay behind bars? Will taxpayers foot the bill for more jails? Will capital punishment help solve overcrowding? Thousands of lives and billions of dollars wait on the answers. That's why The Big House is so important. The Big House is not a collection of reform theories. Rather, it is an incredibly detailed look at exactly how prisons work: how do you house, feed, and control thousands of violent, angry people? The Big House takes a gritty look at issues like capital punishment, psychosurgery, riot control and dealing with the sexual needs of prisoners. Tony Lesce understands the interplay between convicts and their keepers. A frequent contributor to law enforcement publications, he is also the author of Escape From Controlled Custody. In The Big House, he examines the prison system from all perspectives: the inmates, the guards, the politicians, and the taxpayers. The crisis in criminal justice touches the lives of everyone. Those concerned with how the prison system works -- and how it can work better should start with The Big House. Buchnummer des Verkäufers SKU1002231
