This book tells the stories of the world's harshest prisons, and the people on either side of the locked door. These pages are packed with accounts of repressive prison regimes and the people who fight against them, the vicious hierarchies that operate within the prison population, what it's like to be on Death Row, riots and hostage taking, violent abuse by both guards and inmates, plus daring escapes against the odds.
