Abstract:

Prison Crowding: A Psychological Perspective provides an overview of current research on the impact of prison crowding on inmates. The book focuses on the personal, social, and environmental factors which contribute to stress in crowded prisons. The main contribution of this book is the presentation of results from a large-scale project on the deleterious effects of crowding in a wide variety of prisons and jails in the United States. A comprehensive, theoretical model is presented to account for the range of findings from this important study, and practical implications for prison design and management are developed. This book in the series Research in Criminology reviews and analyzes the environmental and psychological aspects of one of the most pressing problems in corrections and penal reform.
