My review of Robert Clark’s book on Canada’s prisons

Summary:
Robert Clark has written a very good book about Canada’s prison system. Mr. Clark worked from 1980 until 2009 in seven different federal prisons, all located in Ontario. The book is a compilation of personal accounts based on the author’s various assignments. Since prisons can be a pipeline into homelessness, I’ve reviewed the book with great interest. My review is available here. Nick Falvo is a Calgary-based research consultant. He has a PhD in public policy.
