5-0 out of 5 stars Former Friedrichs Student
As a graduate of The University of Scranton, with a B.S. in CJ, I had the honor of studying under the author of this text. 5-0 out of 5 stars By far the best....
As a college professor, and researcher/student of white collar crime,Friedrichs' Trusted Criminals is by far the best text available on thetopic.His extensive coverage of the wide array of actions constitutingwhite collar crime provides readers with a better understanding of thissometimes confusing topic.Also, his easy-to-follow writing style andexcellent use of examples facilitate comprehension of the material.It isapparent that a great deal of effort went into writing this book.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Very Dark Side of Human Imagination
In this excellent work, the author makes the statement that "... [the human] ability to conjure up methods of torture and death is .... infinite". Indeed, after reading this book, one cannot agree with him more. In a rich and most elegant (and often tongue-in-cheek) prose, the author clearly describes in excess of 69 ways used throughout history to officially execute human beings, frequently with various accompanying methods of torture. These execution methods are presented in alphabetical, as opposed to chronological, order; hence, the book can be read all at once or in dribs and drabs without any loss of continuity. The descriptions are agonizingly detailed and, well, quite colorful. In many cases, several fascinating anecdotes are provided to further enrich the reader's reading experience; these include personal information on some of the executioners and their many clients, the nature of the crimes committed and the attitudes of the attending crowds - all this weaved in the backdrop of the times in which these people lived (and died). This well-written book should be of interest, not only to those interested in the gory, the horrific and the macabre, but also to ordinary history buffs.

5-0 out of 5 stars history buffs will appreciate this deep look at the darker side of societies
Surprisingly considering the topic of historical references to torture and execution techniques, this tome is a enthralling well written look at how it was applied in western society over the centuries. The book is arranged in alphabetical order with the sizes of each entry varying based on available information and to a degree frequency of usage.The fascination is typically with the smaller sized less known entries.Though more information is valuable on the "popular" techniques such as Madame Guillotine, lethal injection, or hanging, the methods that most people have never heard of like being sewn inside an animal's stomach, the Spanish Donkey or Flayed alive, etc., which are relatively one or two paragraphs are the ones that hook the audience.Though the Guantomino crowd might insist this book is barbaric, history buffs will appreciate this deep look at the darker side of governments and societies.
4-0 out of 5 stars Macabre reading
Over the course of over ten books, Geoffrey Abbott has developed a reputation for covering topics of "medieval" (in the Pulp Fiction sense) violence.This book will not disappoint anyone looking to jar themselves with a little bit of cruelty.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Continuation of Slavery by Other Means
Great writing combined with great scholarship to tell the heartwrenching story of the virtual slavery instituted in the post-Civil War South through the rise of plantation prisons, where thousands of mostly black convicts were worked as hard and treated as viciously as the slaves were during the antebellum years. A shamefully neglected part of U.S. history. Oshinsky's brilliant book is a great work of scholarship and historical literature. A must-read!

5-0 out of 5 stars How did it happen
An eye opener. one wonders how things like this could happen in the good ol USA. Some people made a lot of money from this kind of thing.

5-0 out of 5 stars depressing
I was aware that economic conditions for african-americans were very limited until at least after World War II.I had no idea how horrible conditions in the south were after the civil war,this book is a real eye opener for me. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars At this point, Mumia's guilt or innocence is immaterial...
First of all, I'd like to say that at this point, it doesn't matter if Mumia is guilty or innocent because the fact is, in this country we have something called Procedural Law, which mandates that if certain rules and guidelines are abused in a criminal trial, the case/charges at hand should be dropped. That is precisely what happend in Mumia's case. If you read this book (or any article about Mumia for that matter,) it's clear that the rights afforded to any prisoner were violated in his case and that the violations of procedure were so great that his case should be dropped and he should be freed, regardless of anything else.
1-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre
Mumia Abu Jamal is not a great writer.He is, in fact, barely a GOOD writer.And if he hadn't murdered Daniel Faulkner in the 80's, he'd be just about nobody right now.
4-0 out of 5 stars very intersting and very scary
very very interesting points made by Mumia in this book.It is a shame that this country imprisons more people than anywhere on Earth and yet has abandoned all efforts to reform the individuals who are put into jail (many falsly due to economic status and especially race.Although at some times the book seems just a little bit repetitive, it is still filled with very sobering facts about our justice system which are well researched and presented with the tone of someone who is generally concerned about his people. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A Model of Institutionalization as a Reaction to Disorder
I really enjoyed reading this book, though it did take me a while to read through it.Rothman advances an argument to explain why America turned to instituionalization of different classes of people during the Jacksonian period.His basic thesis is that medical elites feared the growing democratization of American society and therefore advanced the idea that institutionalization could make unproductive citizens productive and simletaneously serve as a model for the rest of the society.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars ...And justice for all
What an amazing read; I had this book saved on my wish list entirely TOO LONG.I was intrigued when I first heard of the case on ABC's 20/20 program and Nate's book was a sparkling expose.
4-0 out of 5 stars A good book
Nate Blakeslee's "Tulia" tells the story of the small town of Tulia, Texas, where one white man was able to arrest over forty black men (and women) with almost no evidence and no documentation of their alleged crimes.
4-0 out of 5 stars Tulia
I found this to be riviting reading. The writer gives us a glimpse into the lives of many people in Tulia.After reading the book, we feel that we know these people.A good job of covering the whole story.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Battle of Alcatraz is a Great Book!
Ernest Lageson has written an outstanding and fast paced book on what many consider as the most daring escape ever from Alcatraz. Ernest has also written a sequel that I'm about half way through and it is great! Lageson's book is an excellent account of the 1946 Battle of Alcatraz. I highly recommend this book as a companion to the books written by Don Denevi and Phillip Bergen titled Alcatraz '46, and also Alcatraz a Definitive History of the Prison Years by Michael Esslinger. All of these books provide great accounts of this escape attempt. Lageson's father was one of the guards held hostage by the escaping prisoners. He offers readers a blow by blow skillful account of the events and a lot of information that had been told to him by his father.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
Visited The Rock this July, bought this book at the bookstore, This book was a great book made me feel like i was actully there. The auther Tells a great story. Suggest to everyone

5-0 out of 5 stars Riveting, Interesting, and Readable
Author Ernest Lageson provides us with an account of the 1946 attempted breakout at Alcatraz prison during which time his father was a guard at the institution.He provides the reader with the details of a well-planned attempt by inmates to vacate "The Rock".The best laid plans go sour for the strangest reasons, and this plan went awry because a guard decided to keep a key to the recreation yard in his pocket because he was to reuse it shortly instead of returning it where it belonged.The inmates were unable to locate the key and their plot was foiled. The author provides us with details of the personalities of the inmates involved and their frustration when things began to go wrong.Author Lageson was a schoolboy at the time, and he expresses his agony in not knowing whether his father was alive or not.Conflict between Warden James Johnston and his associate, Edward Miller, in resolving the takeover is gone into detail with Warden Johnston appearing as confused as to what to do to rescue the guards in the cell block and quash the uprising.According to the author, Johnston had his facts wrong, also, when providing details to the press.Having just visited Alcatraz last week I wanted to read this book and was able to visualize the inside of the prison.I found this book very interesting to read.I can't imagine a reviewer who found it to be boring.I would highly recommend the book to you. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A conscience's prisioneer life in Cuba.
I read this book, translated to the portuguese, here in Brazil, some years ago.It's a book about the decades, who this Castro's victim was under prision in Cuba.A nightmare's life and for more then two decades.
4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Chronicle Of Castro's Achievements
Castro has now ruled across the terms of 10 US Presidents.The secret of his longevity is not his popularity with the Cuban people, but rather his ruthless suppression of any dissent or competition. Valladares provides a keyhole view into this world of true terror and depravity.
5-0 out of 5 stars should be read alongside orwell and wiesel
This is a great book. It should be given to every sap and sucker who somehow finds merit in Castro's Revolution. Valladares chronicles the absolute repression at the core of Castro's regime. The torture and executions at La Cabana and Isle of Pines prisons are among the most brutal and extensive cases of barbarism any government has ever devised. The next time some Oliver Stone or Michael Moore type tells you about Castro's achievements such as a "high literacy rate," give them this book. And remind them that this is one book you'll never see in Cuba, or in an American college classroom that romanticizes Castro's oppression. This is the real "Animal Farm," folks: a powerfully written nightmare of tyrannical cruelty and the deep spiritual resilience needed to pull through.

5-0 out of 5 stars Provides a comprehensive guide for managing prisons.
Dr. Carlson has extensive background in correctional administration.His book provides the reader with numerous examples (both practical and theoretical) for managing correctional facilities.I plan to use this textteaching undergraduate studies in correctional administration.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good College Text
The book is well-suited for a semester course in correctional institution administration.Topics are well chosen and the various authors seem to know the prison business.Although the chapters are abbreviated, they allseem to cover the subjects adequately ... for a survey course.I would usethis as a text.

2-0 out of 5 stars The liberal Rush Limbaugh
When I embarked upon reading this book, I thought I would be getting a fair and precise look into the American legal system.What I got was anything but that.Anybody wanting to read this book should know that Parenti is an extreme left-winger and this book is an acidic ribbing of the Republican Party, police offers, etc. etc.I do admit that Parenti is quite knowledgeable about the justice system and he provides many examples -- this book is full of examples to back up his points.But there is a problem: the only examples he gives are examples of police malfeasance, he never tells police success stories.5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensable
This is the best book I've ever read that deals with the burgeoning police-state in the U.S.Parenti ranges far and wide by giving a sound structural analysis as to why police and their paramilitary style tactics have oversaturated our streets.Economics and politics are often at the crux of most social problems; Parenti understands this and gives the reader an intellectually fascinating and stimulating journey documenting just how our country has been transformed over the last thirty years into a civil libertarians nightmare.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Worth The Money But Lots Of Pictures
I purchased "Prison Tattoos" to study gangs and their tattoos. Being interested in law enforcement and part owner of a tattoo shop this book caught my eye. The intro is about 8 pages followed by 60-70 pages of pictures some fuzzy and crude. The post script is one more page. Lots and lots of pictures of work. But at about a dollar a page of writing, this is a mighty expensive book with little information. Good buy if found of the sale rack or used.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting commentary and tattoos, mean looking guys.
I picked up Prison Tattoos at a college bookstore because it was on sale.It included temporary tattoos made from some of the convicts' designs, which was also novel.Read more
