    On a book review

    The Hot House: Life Inside Leavenworth Prison Author Pete Earley Published in 1992 The story takes place in the late 1980's. The Hot House: Life Inside Leavenworth Prison is a book I recommend for all Criminal Justice students. This book gives you the inside look at one of the most danger prisons in the United States. Pete Earley is a reporter who decided to do a story on Leavenworth Prison and was the only reporter ever allowed inside the prison gates. He studied and talked to many prisoners through a two year span and refused any type of security while in the prison. Earley focuses on 5 convicts and their life inside prison and a little of their lives before prison. He writes about the Cuban riots, the Hole, racial disputes, rapes, and murders which all took place inside the prison. All five men came to trust Earley, even Dallas Scott, known to be one of the most dangerous men inside Leavenworth. This book lets you into the minds of the convicts and makes you see them in a different way, not in the way society labels them. This Non-Fiction book will sway your emotions on prison life in many directions throughout the book, but it will always keep you wanting more.

    amberlyn -- thank you.

    On a Goffman book review

    Here is my book review for Erving GOffmans, The Presentation of Self and Everyday Life ... Goffman'sbook was a very powerful handbook, as some would call, that used the sociological perspective of a theatrical performance to depict a kind of social life. The actors, actresses, audience and stage are all parties to the interaction. He says life is like a play and that a play can be looked at as the structure of social encouters. Basically what I got out of it is that people are always "acting" in one way or another whether it be sincere or fake, and that is just a natural part of life. No one ever really knows quite the difference between true and false. I thought overall it was a good book.

    sam -- thank you.

    On a book review

    The book "Mothers in Prison", by Phyllis Jo Baunach, gives interesting insight into many of the problems facing inmate mothers. Although printed in 1988, I feel that this book still pertains to many of the issues that inmate mothers face today and will continue to deal with in the future. This books arguments are often based upon research data and statistics that gives evidence to prove the different points the author is trying to make. For those interested in researching mothers in prison, I would suggest reading this book. It's available at the U.W. Parkside library.

    chase-- thank you!
