Supplies a critical appraisal of the role of prisons as a form of punishment
Introduction.- Prologue.- Chapter 1. The Jailer's Salary.- Chapter 2. The Northern Star.- Chapter 3. The Paradox of Control.- Chapter 4. Words Ring Hollow.- Chapter 5. Dreams of Beccaria.- Chapter 6. Eurovision Europrisons?.- Epilogue.
This book discusses the role of the prison in Europe across a divide of over 200 years. Inspired by the travels of the prison reformer John Howard (1726-1790), who visited prisons across Europe in the eighteenth century, it fundamentally reflects on centuries of the practice of locking people up as punishment. Howard travelled across Europe to visit prisons, with a simple method: he travelled and knocked on prison doors on his journey and entered the premises. He then observed the situation in the prison, took notes and left to visit other locations. Howard's influential book The State of the Prisons resulted from his experiences, provoking debate among prison reformers and academics worldwide.
