This was written in a way that it is easy to understand for those who need to immediately apply knowledge about how a specific issue (such as solitary confinement) should be approached. When used for a classroom based study the students found the book format to be difficult to follow and in a bad order for understanding precedence.
I recommend this book to those currently experiencing the prison system but not to students attempting to study law.
This text details critical information on all aspects of prison litigation, including information on trial and appeal, conditions of isolated confinement, access to the courts, parole, right to medical aid and liabilities of prison officials. Highlighted topics include application of the Americans with Disabilities Act to prisons, protection given to HIV-positive inmates, and actions of the Supreme Court and Congress to stem the flow of prison litigation. Part II contains Judicial Decisions Relating to Part I.
