Synopsis: Written for policy makers and practitioners involved with the growing number of women in jails and prisons, this book argues that the system needs to become more proactive in recognizing the needs of this population, and more proactive in addressing these needs. Many excerpts are presented from the first person narratives of non-recidivist women who tell what they feel they need to remain free and empowered in a context of powerlessness and increasing social control. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

From the Back Cover: This is the first study to address the important but neglected topic of how women return to the "free world" after single or multiple experiences of incarceration. It uses first-person narratives and a comprehensive review of contemporary theory to provide useful suggestions for practitioners and policymakers concerned with responding to the increasing number of women in the criminal justice system.
