"This book is one of the most deeply moving and realistic accounts of prison life and its social ramifications that I have yet encountered in my career as a professional agent of law enforcement. John writes with intellectual force, penetrating analysis, and great eloquence of a professional social scientist. With great skill and pressing relevance he combines first-hand observations, psychological theory, and critical philosophical insights into an expert analysis of a forlorn culture which few endeavor to understand, but which for the lack of such understanding we are all very much at a loss.

Sometimes John's accounts are controversial; sometimes pathetic; humorous; shocking. But at all times they are realistic, resourceful, and show keen insight. A much needed book in the rank and file of law enforcement and correctional practice." -- Marilyn K. Gambrell, Exec. Director, No More Victims, Inc.
