Dr. Morris' book should be of considerable interest to practitioners and students alike. Case illustration provides illuminating examples of offenders' histories with their subsequent engagement in the program. It is refreshing indeed, to se the term "therapeutic community" spelled out and not depreciated by its upper case initials.
This book is an inside account of the work, and the theory behind the work, carried out at a prison which not only exemplifies the best in prison philosophy, but also a pioneering approach to the treatment of psychopaths... This is a book for anyone interested in therapeutic communities, in constructive prison regimes, in treatment programmes for DSPD people and for anyone who looks for hope within prisons.
