    (E–pub READ) American Prison: A Reporter's Undercover Journey into the Business of Punishment Very interesting subject, really well written, especially since every other chapter goes into the history of the US prison system and how we’ve got where we are now; and importantly, why. I was surprised that I felt sympathy for the prison guards as well as the prisoners but they are all victims of what is a very lucrative business.

I'm in UK but was horrified at the practices continued after the abolition of Slavery and the politics of how prisons are run An honest book based on personal experience not just a book of biographical drama

    US Government.. You should be ashamed.

This is one of the few books that I couldn t finish and not because of the topic While I agree that this is important to talk about the way the author carried out was absolutely unacceptableFor starters using Zimbardo to justify your power trips and crappy behavior is not valid in 2018 when this book is written In psychology we talk about Zimbardo to teach people what NOT to do in research and so there is no longer an excuse for his behavior The Stanford prison study was awful and Zimbardo was the one who egged on the prison guards to abuse the prisoners It was Zimbardo who in response to the prisoners having mental breakdowns forced them to stay and accused them of faking It was Zimbardo who was so proud of that system of psychological torture that he showed his fiance and the only reason he stopped it was because his fiance threatened to break up with him Zimbardo didn t exactly change either He probably didn t do anything as bad as the Stanford Prison Study after that probably because of the establishment of institutional review boards IRBs but 10 years later he induced deafness and paranoia in a participants for a study that was so bad the only use for it is to teach bright eyed aspiring psychologists what NOT to do in research Any reporter worth their salt would know this with just a little investigation like talking to ACTUAL psychologistsThe main reason I could not bring myself to finish this book is that this author demonstrates that he has a very good unerstanding of ethics but doesn t actually follow them even though there s really no real benefit to people for disregarding them Here are the main issues1 He made a big deal about how awful it is to talk about people without informed consent but then publishing a letter that someone else wrote to one of the inmates including identifying information such as the exact prison it was sent to exact spelling and wording and some information about the person s background Legal or not there was absolutely no excuse for it If he really felt so bad about reading a private letter he wouldn t publish 99% of it in a book for everyone especially people who might know the letter writer enough to identify them to read And if it was absolutely necessary for the readers to know which it isn t then he could have taken a few minutes to paraphrase it Instead the author acts like HE S the victim here even though it was HIS CHOICE to keep reading that letter and HIS CHOICE to publish it for everyone to read just for money The fact that he acted less reluctant to publish private information about someone who had very little to do with the prison system at the time than to publish information about prison guards who were displaying abusive behavior should speak volumes about his character and not in a good way2 When he talked about his experience in the prison s suicide watch the way he framed it did absolutely nothing to address the stigma surrounding mental health In some ways it seemed that he was advocating for the view that people with mental disorders are all scary and dangerous even though the reality is that people with mental disorders are far likely to be victims than perpetrators of crime and abuse So much for being an advocate3 He talks about how he doesn t want to be deceiptful to anyone and even claims to fill out the application and personality tests without lying about himself but then goes on to fake being a homosexual when he is not actually homosexual Um pretty sure faking your sexuality especially when it s to try and get a reaction from others is still deceptionConclusion Don t support this author by buying his book I m sure there are plenty of great books out there that discuss the problems with the private prison system in a much sensitive and much less self centered manner

His story of working in the prison is a page turner But every other chapter is on the history of slaves freemen both white and black Descriptions of the working and living conditions were unbelievable Surely the people of the South can t be proud of that history I had my doubts about for profit prisons and this book confirms them
