Hardback, 1st edition. The open prison or so-called 'prison without bars' began development from about the 1930s. This study provided the first full-length analysis of open prisons and offered a detailed account of the differences and similarities between them and the more traditional closed training prisons. Materials used included direct observations of life in prisons, questionnaires, tests and interviews, covering long, medium and short-term sentences. The most striking fact to emerge was the extent to which open prisons resembled closed institutions, a fact attributed mainly to the pressure on both staff and inmates of an overriding prison culture. Illus., Appendices, Notes and Index. 275pp. 8vo. h/back. F. in F. dw.
