Cayley, D. (1999) "The Expanding Prison. The Crisis in Crime and Punishment and the Search for Alternatives"

Uploaded at: 2010. 03. 01.


Toronto, House of Anansi Press, 405 p.

In The Expanding Prison, Cayley investigates the immediate causes of the prison crisis and examines the history of crime and punishment. He then reveals provocative new ways of construing crime and considers proven alternatives to imprisonment -- alternatives that emphasize restitution and repentance rather than retribution. In the end a vision of justice as peace making, rather than as vengeance, emerges, beyond prison walls.
