This book shows that in the Prison Service of England and Wales, conditions are incomparably humane, and the mission of rehabilitation has not been abandoned. It has authoritarian as well as humanitarian features. It also eschews conventional methods of paternal power. Assistance and authority are interlinked: the ‘smack of firm government’ is poised in the background to make sure that opportunity, support, and self-correction are grasped and pursued appropriately.
