9781424314782: These Were My Realities

This book is factual account of the experiences and observations of the author while he was incarcerated in a prison in the United States for having been found guilty of sexual abuse. While the author strongly discourages other people from allowing themselves the engage in illegal sexual activities, he also raises fundamental questions about how the issue of intergenerational love is understood and dealt with in our society. He also raises questions about the wisdom of creating the huge and inhuman warehouses for people we call "correctional facilities" or prisons. In an effort to make the experience as productive as possible the author resolved to treat his stay in prison as a "participant observer" study. The book contains a number of sociological and psychological observations that might be of interest to professions in the human sciences as well as to lay people.
