The arts - spanning the visual, design, performing, media, musical, and literary genres - constitute an alternative lens through which to understand state-sanctioned punishment and its place in public consciousness. Perhaps this is especially so in the case of imprisonment: its nature, its functions, and the ways in which these register in public perceptions and desires, have historically and to some extent inherently been intertwined with the arts. But the products of this intertwinement have by no means been constant or uniform. Indeed, just as exploring imprisonment and its public meanings through the lens of the arts may reveal hitherto obscured instances of social control within or outside prisons, so too it may uncover a rich and possibly inspirational archive of resistance to them. This edited collection sheds light both on state use of the arts for the purposes of controlling prisoners and the broader public, and the use made of the arts by prisoners and portions of the broader public as tools of resistance to penal states. The book also includes a number of chapters that address arts-in-prisons programmes, making distinctive contributions to the literature on their philosophy, formation, operation, effectiveness, and research evaluation, as well as taking care to explore the politics surrounding and underpinning these multiple themes.

This volume recognizes and addresses the health care issues of prisoners, to establish best practices and to learn about approaches to these challenges from around the world. It presents new evidence on several emerging and classical prison health issues. The first goal of this volume is to address emerging issues related to health in prison. Second, it presents the most recent research-based evidence and translates it to the practice. The third goal, is that it allows for sufficient diversity while also incorporating updates of some important already recognized prison health. The volume discusses prisons and the life and well-being of prisoners and staff, after growing problems as drug misuse (incl. tobacco smoking), infectious diseases (HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, STIs and TB), psychiatric problems, inadequate and unhealthy living conditions (incl. nutrition), overcrowding of prisons. These are addressed adequately in order to meet the international requirements of equivalence of health care. The scope of this volume is at the same type specific and diverse enough to cover the interests of a large audience that includes many types of practitioners involved in health-related issues in the field of prison health care, such as psychologists, nurses and prison administration officers responsible for health care, legal professionals and social workers.

THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU IF... ● You want accurate information and insight from someone who spent ten years in prison ● You ever wanted to know how art is made in prison and the challenges faced by men and women prisoners who create it against all odds. ● You are an art lover who is considering taking the next step beyond admiring prisoner-made art and helping support and encourage imprisoned artists. ● You want to see an improved justice system in America to help those in prison obtain materials and opportunities to use art for therapeutic and rehabilitative purposes. ● You are a socially aware person who knows the value of art in keeping the mind and soul intact even during the worst of times that prisoners in America endure. ● You are considering becoming a mentor to imprisoned artists to encourage and help them overcome the challenges and obstacles they face in making and selling art to cover their expenses and create savings for the future. Author Dennis Sobin spent 10 years in federal and state prisons when he refused to plead guilty and accept probation for crimes he did not commit. But he didn't despair while in prison. He used his time to create art and to plan his return to society where he would establish the Prisons Foundation, Safe Streets Arts Foundation, Prison Art Gallery and the Rehabilitation Foundation, ultimately receiving recognition for his accomplishments at the John F. Kennedy Center. Author of the highly praised book, From Prison to Kennedy Center Stage: Starting over at the Top, Sobin's Art on the Inside highlights the talent and humanity of the many fine artists in prison today. Sobin says, "Without the help of free-world people to encourage and support my work during my ten years of imprisonment, I would not have survived with my soul and mind intact."

The Handbook of Incarceration in Popular Culture will be an essential reference point, providing international coverage and thematic richness. The chapters examine the real and imagined spaces of the prison and, perhaps more importantly, dwell in the uncertain space between them. The modern fixation with ‘seeing inside’ prison from the outside has prompted a proliferation of media visions of incarceration, from high-minded and worthy to voyeuristic and unrealistic. In this handbook, the editors bring together a huge breadth of disparate issues including women in prison, the view from ‘inside’, prisons as a source of entertainment, the real worlds of prison, and issues of race and gender. The handbook will inform students and lecturers of media, film, popular culture, gender, and cultural studies, as well as scholars of criminology and justice.
