Age of Imprisonment : Work, Life and Death Among Older Men in British Prisons Hardback
This book addresses the issue of the rapidly growing number of elderly men entering and serving time in prison and draws upon extensive original research in four prisons holding a high concentration of men aged sixty-five plus years.
It examines, in fine detail, the emotional, psychological and practical implications of serving a prison sentence late in life and the challenges that face staff who work with this prisoner group.
The work reported in this book combines a contextual policy analysis and an appraisal of current regimes and practices with close observation in the field and narrative interviews.
This book will be of interest to academics and researchers working in the fields of criminology, prison studies and social studies of ageing, as well as those working in prisons in Britain and internationally.
