This international edited volume of cutting-edge critical prison research explores key themes of deprivations, stigma, power, culture and vulnerability in a breadth of penal settings and prisoner populations. Ranging across North America and Canada, Western, Central and Eastern Europe, Australia, this research considers: young offenders and juvenile institutions; sex offenders; therapeutic environments; wrongfully convicted prisoners; female prisons and prisoners; parents in prison; post-release settings and supervision. Each chapter draws upon empirical research undertaken with people living and working with the day-to-day realities of life in or after prison, and explores that experience from their personal and unique perspectives. These accounts are organised into three parts structuring the text based upon common themes threading through the chapters around: stigma and prison culture; pains of imprisonment; boundaries between the inside and outside worlds of prison life. Introductions to the text and each part familiarise the reader with foundational theories and seminal works underpinning the analysis of the experiences captured within the chapters, whilst a conclusion draws out themes universal to the countries, settings and populations explored.
