[good solid copy, mild shelfwear, previous owner's signature on ffep; jacket moderately edgeworn, a couple of small tears at top of rear panel, small piece missing at bottom of spine]. "This book is an amalgam of experts on both sides of the bars: psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, criminologists, attorneys and former inmates. [The editor] has treated us to both scientific papers and subjective reports. There are tables, figures, hypotheses and there are introspective accounts from those who have themselves been in the pit. Those latter reports are of special interest. They do not exploit the situation by wallowing in self-pity or sensationalism; rather, they unfailingly report the rampant enforced homosexuality, the omnipresent graft, the thorough dehumanization and the too-frequent suicide."
