This title was first published in 2001. Suicide in prison is a growing problem across the developed world. This work sets out to enlarge understanding of the complexities of suicidal feelings and of the part played by some inalienable features of prison life. It does this by presenting and analyzing prisoners's accounts of their most intimate responses to the deprivations of prison, in particular the stringent control and management of their personal time and space. These accounts show the depth of suffering as well as the range of creative responses produced in prisoners through interaction with the prison environment.
