The Prisons Handbook
Mark Leech, Deborah Cheney
Waterside Press, Jan 1, 2002 - Law - 650 pages
This definitive annual work always attracts outstanding reviews for its scale, comprehensiveness, accuracy, clarity and reliability. It has the support of the director general of HMPS - and many serving governors, officers and prisoners contribute to it with current information. The handbook is quite simply the best day-to-day work that there is on prisons in England and Wales. It contains a detailed A to Z of the Prisons of England and Wales including this year, for the first time, ëgovernor profilesí (where supplied) plus nine further substantial sections dealing with virtually every aspect of imprisonment: law; human rights; prison regimes; minority rights and a host of other topics ñ including, new this year, sections on Prison Officers and Prison Governors and on Gay and Bi-sexual prisoners.
