In this unique and extraordinary book, Michael G. Santos helps others learn about the abnormal way of life behind the walls and fences of prisons. To provide readers with a more complete and realistic picture of the growing subculture that exists in prison, the author provides both his own experiences and observations of living as a prisoner, as well as dialogues, vignettes, and profiles of other prisoners and workers within the prison environment. This book addresses the unprecedented growth in the prison system over the past two decades, and asks future correctional professionals to critically examine the current prison system.

About the Author:

Michael G. Santos began his life as a federal prisoner in 1987, at age twenty-three, in a maximum-security prison. Since then, he has spent a few years as a medium-security prisoner, and he is now confined in the low-security prison at Fort Dix, in New Jersey. While confined, Santos has completed a BA and a MS degree in criminal justice and is now working to help educate both the prison population and those outside of prison walls about prison life.
