KD5.000
We know that inmates are nothing but con artists, but this book, "We Are No Angels," reveals that some correctional officers share the same criminal mindset as the inmates. They engage in games against the inmates, ranging from serious offenses against the laws of the land to actions that are morally wrong or simply pathetic. The stories in this book vary from hilarious to sad to sadistic. However, despite its focus on prison life, this book is not a downer. On the contrary, you will find it fascinating and highly informative. Genre: Prison Literature/Criminology

Why Obey Authority (إلكتروني)

KD5.000
  • Why do we choose to have authority to rule over our lives and limit our freedom as to what we can do? We need authority because without it, life would be "nasty, brutish, and short," as Thomas Hobbes, the philosopher, put it. Without a strong authority, people would act solely on their own interests, leading to chaos.
  • So, we accept authority to avoid this state of constant conflict, ensuring our safety and a more peaceful society. It's quite a deep dive into human nature and governance!

Gookin Out ( إلكتروني )

KD5.000
Drugs use among inmates throughout U.S. prisons has gotten out of control. Prison officials no longer can keep a tap on it. One reason is that department of corrections suffer from severe shortages of staff, due to politicians’ budget cuts, allocations, and reappropriations.

This book tackles the drugs epidemic in U.S. prisons and proposes solutions to it. Genre: Prison Literature/Drug Abuse.

House Of Cons | Electronic

KD5.000
In prison, everyone is a con artist. Everyone got games: inmates are locked in perpetual, bitter games against each other, against prison guards; and games against their own family and friends on the outside world. Some of these games are so hilarious; some are sad; while some are just pathetic; and some are deadly! The House of Cons, abrasive, honest and funny, is an insider’s account of the games played behind the barbed wire. Shocking and darkly humorous… with lyrical pros and biting wit, The House of Cons reveals the devastating impact of the newly graduated students (otherwise known as “ex-cons”) from the criminology schools (otherwise misnomer as “correctional institutions)”. The House of Cons is an unsparing and very funny chronicle that will remain on the short list of books essential to understanding America’s prisons. Here are the nation’s prisons as they look from the inside—waste, folly and sheer silliness included. Genre: Prison Language: English
