This chapter sums up the arguments presented in this book. Germany's prisoners' rights were formed in a political and legal culture shaped by constitutional rights, characterized by faith in fundamental rights, and dominated by rights rhetoric. In contrast, it is hard to find clear legal principles guiding the exercise of prison administration and defining prisoners' rights in English law. The statutory regime in England is concerned, not with the definition of prisoners' legal rights, but with clarifying lines of political control and accountability.
