Prison Life and Human Worth

Author:

Paul W. Keve

Prison Life and Human Worth

It is a much more constructive work than most of the popular books deploring prisons, and much more objective and profound in its deploring than most. The main distinction is its explanation of the defects of prisons; rather than blaming them on evil people it points to the causes and it proposes realistic remedies.
