Softcover. A collection of writings on prison abolition by Ruth Morris who initiated the idea for the First International Conference on Prison Abolition and was an international figure in the prison abolition movement. Based on 15yrs experience with the Canadian justice system, the author puts the argument for prison abolition in three compelling sections : Part I: The Case for Prison Abolition; Part II: Injustices in the Justice System; Part III: True Alternatives to Prison, plus Part IV: Conclusions: Prison Abolition Today and Tomorrow. This book does not argue for tearing down prison walls. It offers viable solutions to the many problems that plague the prison system. The book is ideal for courses in the social sciences and humanities, or just the average concerned citizen who wants to see a more caring community. With Notes + Bibliog. 166pp. trade size softcover. Cover Illus. by Marion Black. Vg+ with no creasing to covers.
