Hardback. Foreword by Sir Basil Blackwell. An authentic account of the daily life and conditions in prisons at the time, by someone who spent a generation in the Prison service. He covers amongst other things, hanging, whipping, and homosexuality. He had the confidence of the prisoners, who recognised his authority in applying with fairness and full knowledge the rules and conditions of the prison system. Some of the stories are grim, but all those in which the author was concerned reveal his fundamental kindness and his understanding of the sadly imperfect people with whom he spent so much of his life. Illus. 192pp. 8vo. h/back. Sl. faded sp. o/w Vg.
