This book is about human breakdown under stress. It is the fi rst attempt comprehensively to map the variety of forms that despair can take, to reconstruct the ineffable shapes of human extremity as fully and faithfully as possible. Presenting the results of one of the largest studies ever undertaken, the book is based on well over 600 interviews (and related background material) dealing with the self-destructive acts of men and women in prison. It is thus also a portrait of the impact of incarceration, bringing to life the prison world as seen through the eyes of those who suffer in confi nement. Hundreds of inmates, speaking in their own words, here present a fi rsthand view of their experience with all its nuances and pathos.
