Description
Summary:"The millions of men and women locked up in jails and prisons do not need to be punished, nor should they be punished. Neither should they be treated as objects whose suffering is used to deter others from committing crimes; nor should they be forced to enter programs whose goal is rehabilitation.

The state of penal ideology and penal affairs -- It is wrong to punish anyone for any reason -- Conversion as inclusion -- What is wrong with rehabilitation? -- How conversion can rehabilitate the penal system
