It is 25 years since the Thatcher government launched privately-run prisons.
This book offers an assessment of their successes and failures, analysing the benefits of competition, and considering how well the government has managed the unusual quasi-market that the privatization push created.
Drawing on first-person interviews with key players and his own experience, Julian Le Vay presents a valuable look at the results of prison privatization for government, citizens, and prisoners.
