In this issue, the prison writers consider the forthcoming shift from the Ticket-of-Leave Act to a new parole system. The wife of a convict writes  about her experiences and the struggles she faces because of her husband’s incarceration. One author writes about the “Get Tough Policies” and why these do not assist in rehabilitation, while others consider what it means to “do time”.  Articles from other media (including other penal press publications) about crime and punishment are reproduced.
