1 Fishman, Joseph F. Sex in Prison: Revealing Sex Conditions in American Prisons
The author is a former inspector of Federal prisons. "Why is there such a wall of silence encircling the subject of Sex in Prison? We are living in a frank and realistic age, yet the subject of sex in prison - so provocative, so vital, so timely in view of the recent epidemic of prison riots - is shrouded in dread silence. The voluminous literature concerning American prisons is not only sparse when it comes to dealing with this important subject of sex, but has evaded its discussion as much as possible. Prison officials contacted by the publisher were wary and non-committal. Two communications printed here will serve to give the reader an idea of the type of fruitless replies which the publisher received in his quest for data on the subject. Nonetheless, this is a fascinating book, and includes prisoner poetry. 256 pages including 2 appendices. The binding is reddish cloth with minor wear at both spine ends. The corners have very minor wear. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
