Warehousing Violence

Part of the Frontiers of Anthropology Series

Warehousing Violence Synopsis

Warehousing Violence addresses an issue of major concern for the prison system - how to maintain order amongst violent criminals who are in prison for life. Fleisher, an anthropologist who served as a line corrections officer at a maximum security prison in California, points to the success of at least one experiment in non-violence among very violent people. Through a mixture of hands-on management, strict control and innovative prison industry, he shows how even the `hardest cases' can be kept relatively placid in prison.
