9780415745666: Handbook on Prisons

The second edition of the Handbook on Prisons provides a completely revised and updated collection of essays on a wide range of topics concerning prisons and imprisonment. Bringing together three of the leading prison scholars in the UK as editors, this new volume builds on the success of the first edition and reveals the range and depth of prison scholarship around the world.

The Handbook contains chapters written not only by those who have established and developed prison research, but also features contributions from ex-prisoners, prison governors and ex-governors, prison inspectors and others who have worked with prisoners in a wide range of professional capacities. This second edition includes several completely new chapters on topics as diverse as prison design, technology in prisons, the high security estate, therapeutic communities, prisons and desistance, supermax and solitary confinement, plus a brand new section on international perspectives. The Handbook aims to convey the reality of imprisonment, and to reflect the main issues and debates surrounding prisons and prisoners, while also providing novel ways of thinking about familiar penal problems and enhancing our theoretical understanding of imprisonment.

The Handbook on Prisons, Second edition is a key text for students taking courses in prisons, penology, criminal justice, criminology and related subjects, and is also an essential reference for academics and practitioners working in the prison service, or in related agencies, who need up-to-date knowledge of thinking on prisons and imprisonment.

About the Author:

Yvonne Jewkes is Professor of Criminology at the University of Leicester. She is editor of the first Handbook on Prisons (2007), author of Captive Audience: Media, Masculinity and Power in Prisons (2002), and series editor (with Ben Crewe and Thomas Ugelvik) of Palgrave Studies in Prisons and Penology. Yvonne’s publications on prison architecture include (with Philip Hancock) 'Penal Aesthetics and the Pains of Imprisonment’, Punishment & Society; (with Dominique Moran) ‘The paradox of the "green" prison: sustaining the environment or sustaining the penal complex?’, Theoretical Criminology; and ‘The Aesthetics and Anaesthetics of Prison Architecture’, in Simon, J. et al Architecture and Justice (2013).

Ben Crewe is Deputy Director of the Prisons Research Centre at the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge. Dr. Crewe has published widely on prisons and imprisonment, and is on the editorial board of the British Journal of Criminology. His current research is on prisoners serving very long sentences from an early age.

Jamie Bennett has been a prison manager since 1996 and is currently Governor of HMP Grendon & Springhill. Dr. Bennett is also a Research Associate at the University of Oxford and has edited Prison Service Journal since 2004. He has written widely on prisons and was awarded a PhD at University of Edinburgh.

Review:

"A significantly expanded range of issues and international sweep. Cutting edge stuff - original and challenging essays reaching way beyond the useful overview of the field that the title Handbook conjures up."

David Brown, Emeritus Professor, Law Faculty, University of NSW, Sydney, Australia

"An impressive collection of essays addressing some of the key issues in prison research and practice which are currently engaging policy makers, academics and practitioners alike. This is a considerable achievement for the editors - Yvonne Jewkes, Jamie Bennett and Ben Crewe, who have brought together leading authorities in the field to write about these issues in a fresh and engaging way . If you only buy one textbook on prisons this year, make sure that it is this one."

Dr Sharon Shalev, Centre for Criminology, University of Oxford, UK. Author of Supermax: Controlling Risk Through Solitary Confinement (Willan, 2009)

"The arrival of this second edition of the Handbook on Prisons could not be more timely. Mass incarceration, perhaps the most significant social fact of our time, is both expanding and transforming on a global basis. The new volume brings the world's leading experts on penology and punishment and society together and forges a comprehensive platform of historical, theoretical, and problem centered frameworks to analyze the present conjuncture."

Jonathan S. Simon, Adrian A. Kragen Professor of Law; Director of the Center for the Study of Law and Society, UC Berkeley, USA
