Hardback, 1st edn. A picture of the woman prisoner and her life in prison. The book stresses the fact that women are not as lawless as men and that there are comparatively few women criminals - at the time - only 1 woman to every 30 men. If the intensive probation that the author suggests for women prisoners were introduced, the women's prison population could be halved. Such prison reform would require law reform, so that the courts would no longer send women to jail for short sentences. A comprehensive and unique survey of the whole subject. Illus., Appendix and Index. 254pp. 8vo. h/back. Tiny insc. on fpd o/w Nr.F. in Vg+ dw.
