LIFE SENTENCES Rage and Survival Behind Bars. By Wilbert Rideau and Ron Wikberg. The tone is cool, detached, reasonable and nonjudgmental. But Mr. Rideau and Mr. Wikberg are angry, hurt men fighting off hopelessness themselves - they are the journalistic equivalents of jailhouse lawyers. Sometimes, especially when they move in close and describe, for example, the plight of a Joe Williams ("The Escape of Nigger Joe"), who, convicted for murder on flimsy, circumstantial evidence, served his entire adult life, 35 years, before being granted clemency, their rage and pain inflate and distort the prose.

Solid writing from the Angolite, the prisoner-run paper at Louisiana's 18,000-acre maximum security prison and farm. Solid journalism, solid writing.

i just received my book about 10 minutes ago. i ordered it on 9/24/12. i received it prior to my expected time. which is a PLUS+. My teacher requested that we read this book. I am in the masters program in criminal justice. so this book will be a great read for me.

now my only complaint with the seller is that when i received the book it says ship to: my name or occupant. I think that you should NOT put or occupant on anything that a person purchases on this site or any other site that you may sell to. OR OCCUPANT means that anybody who lives at that address is now the rightful owner of that purchase or item. That mistake could cause you your reputation. I am so glad that my mailman put it into my mailbox and not someone else. Also that from the time that i ordered this, i didn't move or have my mail forwarded , because the post office DO NOT FORWARD mail that states or occupant nor those it forward mail stating current resident/occupants. (i checked with the mailman)

At this time this is my only complaint. so to anyone who orders please be aware that you may not get your purchase. i could have easily been dishonest and said that i didnt receive this item. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ADDRESS LABELS.....THANKS

p.s. if this problem is rectified i will order from this seller again.

While there are newer books on prison life, this is still one of the best. It gives a surprisingly balanced view of past and current treatment of prisoners and a good look at prisoners' lives from their own perspective.

Wilbert Rideau is the real deal. He has walked the talk. It's easy to understand why this guy is an award winner.

Book was in the (very good) condition as described, and it was delivered/received promptly--less than a week! A+ service!

Rideau and Wikberg discuss the ways the prison system reinforces violence as a coping mechanism. Factual accounts of inmates' experiences are recounted in detail as examples to the author's theory, and observations of prison psychiatrists are presented in support of the authors' view. Out of deprivation and hopelessness, most inmates will neglect to work on those issues that would enable their successful rehabilitation, and it is easy to see why, in light of the harshness of prison life. The ways in which the system has inadvertently rewarded violent behavior throughout history is also evident, in spite of the many reforms that have been enacted. The message that we still have a long way to go is quite clear, as there really is no reprieve from the harshness of prison life. Until we begin to understand the reasons prisoners resist rehabilitation, we cannot even begin to solve the crime problem in America.
