    1. This book has so much information about the prison industrial complex packed into a rather small format. The statistics given in it may be a bit out of date, which is a problem, but it is an eye-opener for folks who don't know much about the PIC.I read it at the beginning of a 23 day drug study (before they started feeding me the second psychotropic drug), and I took copious notes.

    2. This book is a collection of short essays about the US prison system, mostly written by current or former prisoners. Many of the individual essays are little more than accusations without supporting evidence -- then again, it would be difficult to get evidence for abuses committed by guards that have the protection and privacy of prison walls. Even those essays are interesting because they give a rare opportunity to hear the viewpoint of actual prisoners, a viewpoint that is not generally widely [...]

    3. This book is very interesting. It gives a good insight into certain aspects of the prison industry that other books don't discuss.
