9780028643519: Behind Bars: Surviving Prison

With the numbers of prisoners at the local, state, and federal levels at an all-time high, staying alive in prison--all of which are crowded far beyond their normal capacity, creating a very unpleasant environment at best--is harder than at any time in American history. Behind Bars: The Prison Survival Handbook will show you the best ways to avoid being beaten, sexually abused, and most importantly, getting killed. Other survival tips include how to land a favorable work assignment, the best ways to bribe prison guards, how to work the parole system, and a glossary of prison slang to make the transition easier.
