Human on the Inside : Unlocking the Truth about Canada's Prisons Paperback / softback


"A story of courage and boundless compassion." - Stephen Reid In Human on the Inside , Gary Garrison takes readers out of their comfort zones and into "The Max," one of Canada's most notorious and violent prisons, introducing us to a menacing yet vibrant subculture of inmates, guards, and staff. Through personal stories, Garrison illuminates a criminal justice system that ignores poverty, racism, mental illness, and addiction and deals instead with society's problems with razor wire and harsh treatment.

It is a system that degrades the individual and sees inmates as less than human. Providing a counterbalance to fear-mongering about criminals, he argues that a dehumanizing system generates more crime, not less, and perpetuates another injustice, this time committed on behalf of all Canadians.
