An ever-increasing proportion of humanity is in prison and of course much has been written about prisons. This book takes a global perspective on prison aims and history. Prisons in selected areas of Latin America, Asia and Africa, where local, colonial and international factors influenced their development, are discussed and seen as relevant to future thinking. With black-and-white photographs, references and index.
