Good book with some very interesting facts about the prison system. It would appear that little has changed since our present system of justice came into being 150 years ago! The public still have the same concerns, and staff still have to deal with same problems. An enjoyable read all round, this book should appeal to professionals and lay people alike if they want an insight into the prison system and how it has evolved.

A lot of information about the history of prisons in England & Wales and only some information about Scotland.
Easy to read and very well constructed chapters.
Overall it is a very informative book about the history of British prisons.

I am a big fan of David Wilsons books and programme's. However, I have to confess that I put this down pretty quickly and haven't picked it up again. If I'm honest, it is very factual and written in an academic style. This wouldn't usually be a problem , but in this case it does have the effect of making the book being a little boring. Perhaps I misconstrued what I was buying as it sounded interesting from the write ups.
