   schema:reviewBody ""There has long been a great need for a book which takes a long, careful, and informative look at prisons in England and Wales. Problems of access have inhibited all but the most persistent writers - until now. Mark Leech, a prisoner and acclaimed writer, has compiled a comprehensive guide to prisons in England and Wales which will be invaluable to anyone concerned with prisons, particularly prisoners and their families. The core of the book is a prison-by-prison guide which compiles reports from HM Inspector of Prisons and questionnaires completed by prisoners and prison staff. Each prison is examined in detail, giving the reader a clear picture of the facilities available in each prison: visiting hours, information about workshops, chaplaincy, medical services, wages, education, and sports facilities. Each prison is evaluated both by staff and prisoners to offer a more honest and balanced picture of prison life than has ever been available before. Further sections provide advice on useful organizations, legal rights, foreign prisoners, health problems, financial matters, welfare, religion, discharge grants, release, women prisoners, and young offenders. The final sections look at recent HM Inspector of Prisons reports and reproduce relevant prison legislation as well as questions tabled in Parliament."--Jacket." ;
