The Penal Press - A History of Prison from Within

New Dimensions – May 1978 - May 1978

Release description:

SUMMARY: Articles in this issue consider the root causes of crime, discussing poverty and the illegal drug trade. Solutions brought forward critique the introduction of a compulsory treatment centre and argue for the legalization of heroin, the abolition of prisons, and movement towards income equality. A recent visit from the Attorney General inspires hope that Oakalla will be phased out as has been promised for several years.
