Om boka

The growing body of work on imprisonment, desistance and rehabilitation has mainly focused on policies and treatment programmes and how they are delivered. Experiencing Imprisonment reflects recent developments in research that focus on the active role of the offender in the process of justice. Bringing together experts from around the world and presenting a range of comparative critical research relating to key themes of the pains of imprisonment, stigma, power and vulnerability, this book explores the various ways in which offenders relate to the justice systems and how these relationships impact the nature and effectiveness of their efforts to reduce offending.


Experiencing Imprisonment showcases cutting-edge international and comparative critical research on how imprisonment is experienced by those people living and working within imprisonment institutions in North America and Northern, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Scandinavia. The research explores the subjective experience of imprisonment from the perspective of a variety of staff and prisoner groups, including juveniles, adult female and male prisoners, older prisoners, sex offenders, wrongfully convicted offenders and newly released prisoners.


Offering a unique view of what it is like to be a prisoner or a prison officer, the chapters in this book argue for a prioritisation of understanding the subjective experiences of imprisonment as essential to developing effective and humane systems of punishment. This is essential reading for academics and students involved in the study of criminology, penology and the sociology of imprisonment. It will also be of interest to Criminal Justice practitioners and policymakers around the globe.

Om forfatteren

Carla Reeves is Subject Leader in Criminology at the University of Huddersfield, UK. Prior to joining the University in 2007 Dr Reeves was a Research Officer at Bangor University, during which time she also worked in a Probation Approved Premises (semi-secure hostel accommodation for high risk offenders being released from prison). Her research interests centre around sex offender management and networks (both formal and informal, virtual and real world) with a particular focus on offenders' subjective personal and social experiences of such interactions within, and because of, criminal justice institutions. Alongside this is an allied interest in reintegration and resettlement and offenders' active engagement with these processes.
