This chapter considers Paul Rock's work on prison research and his first empirical study focusing exclusively on the treatment of women. In 1996 Paul published Reconstructing a Women's Prison: The Holloway Redevelopment Project 1968–88, which demonstrates the history of Holloway prison, in particular, its reconstruction during the 1970s and 1980s not as a penal institution but as a therapeutic one that could respond selectively to the treatment needs of criminal women. This chapter shows the value of Rock's meticulous methodology and the utility of the resulting story for understanding the development of current policies and practices that deliver therapeutic interventions for women in prison.
