Understanding the Vocabulary of the Nuclear Arms RaceBook - 1988
The fear of incarceration is supposed by some to outweigh the effects of long-term unemployment, reduced educational opportunities, social dislocation and the despair that accompanies a lack of upward mobility. Others would argue that this belief is unrealistic, that the prison system is failing the citizen and the last two decades of reform have made little or no improvement. Are Prisons Any Better? brings together criminologists, economists and political scientists to address both the theoretical and political aspects of penal reform of the past 20 years. The contributors varied backgrounds gives the book an extra dimension because, the book argues, prison and social reform are synonymous and discussing or proposing one without the other is fruitless.
