This book aims to redress this research gap by providing insight into various aspects of the daily life of prison staff. It provides a serious exploration of their work and, in doing so, will seek to draw attention to the variety, value and complexity of work within prisons.
This book will provide

practitioners, students and the general reader with a comprehensive and accessible guide to the contemporary issues and concerns facing prison staff.

information on relevant research studies, key debates, and on operational and procedural matters.

reflective material for practitioners working in the field

an edited collection which academic staff can adopt for core or specialist modules which focus on prison management, prison officer training, and the occupational cultures of prison staff.
