Making It in the Free World: Women in Transition from Prison

Couverture
SUNY Press, 1 févr. 2001 - 201 pages
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.
