Softcover. The purposes of this White Paper was to increase public understanding and knowledge of the prison service of England and Wales. The Government provides a portrait of our prisons which is more authoritative than a descriptive pamphlet and more wide-ranging than an annual report. It records many substantial changes in our prisons in the post war years, and came at a time when the Government was embarking on an expanding programme of expenditure and undertook a complete overhaul of the structure of the Prison Department. Although the White Paper cannot give a full description of the work of the prison service in all its aspects, it aims to present a balanced and not uncritical picture. Chapter headings include : The Task of the Prison Service; Offenders in Custody; Offenders and the Community; Assessment and Research; The Strategy of the Prison System; Staff and Organisation; Conclusion. With Glossary, Appendix and Index. 123pp. trade size softcover. Lightly sunned o/w Vg+ with no creasing to covers.
