    Unlike most other books I review here this one's for my dissertation It's based on the author's dissertation a project examining whyhow rehabilitation programs fail or succeed in the distinct cultural contexts that exist at 5 different prisons across America and although I've concluded it's not relevant to my own project I appreciate it Prose style is clear and unpretentious Summaries of relevant literature are efficient and effective albeit dated Interviews conversations and observations are deftly interpreted Central arguments are insightful and sensible and for a narrow swath of people who are into policy implementation andor prison reform possibly interesting
