Summary
"Images of Incarceration focuses on fictional portrayals of prison and prisoners to demonstrate how they are depicted in cinema and on TV, featuring films such as The Shawshank Redemption, The Birdman of Alcatraz, Scum, McVicar, Brubaker, Cool Hand Luke, Made in Britain and Greenfingers as well as TV dramas like Porridge, Bad Girls, Buried and Oz." "Images of Incarceration will be of value to anyone interested in the effect of screen representations on the democratic process, and in particular to people concerned with criminal justice, penal affairs, penal reform, sociology and the media."--BOOK JACKET
