A collection of writings by Dr David Scott which build on his work teaching criminology for over 20 years. Against Imprisonment includes topics such as `The Changing Face of the Prison', justifications of punishment, prison violence and the shortcomings of prisons and the mega-prisons. Very much against the current political obsession with increasing incarceration, this book is a wake-up call for all those who feel the use of imprisonment is failing to achieve a reduction in crime. Provides a compelling analysis of the failings of imprisonment. Sheds new light on this pressing topic. Explains why prisons do not work for most offenders.
