Book Review: Surviving Incarceration: Inside Canadian Prisons
International Criminal Justice Review (2016)

Rose Ricciardelli’s Surviving Incarceration: Inside Canadian Prisons eliminates ‘‘some of the mystery of incarceration ... [drawing] attention to some of the inhumanities of prison living ... and the structures that reinforce these conditions’’ (p. 203). Ricciardelli accomplishes this through the analysis and presentation of the lived realities of a heterogeneous group of 56 parolees (i.e., former prisoners) who were incarcerated in 11 federal prisons located in Ontario, Canada.
