Unusually too, it takes the reader on a tour of different levels of analysis, from penal politics to the prisoner experience, and from inside the prison to the institutional siblings, social pathways and political forces that determine the lives of the prison’s inhabitants. It is a real tour de force".on Bastille Nation
