Pollock, J. M. (2013). Prisons and prison life: Costs and consequences .  New York: Oxford 

The author of the non-fiction book you selected  I chose New Jack described their personal experience with prison and prison life.  They discussed a number of different topics covered in Pollock’s text such as the inmate code, the prison black market, violence and sex in prison, and the correctional officer subculture.  Your assignment for the final paper is to select three different topics discussed by 

Pollock and described by the author of your non-fiction book.  You should then compare and contrast the author’s personal experience or illustration of each topic with the prior research that was presented by Pollock.  For example, 

Newjack discusses the correctional officer subculture.  Is Conover’s description of the subculture consistent with what research has found?  How is his description similar?  How does his description differ?  In addition to comparing the authors’ experience to the research presented by Pollock, for each topic, you need to locate one peer-reviewed academic journal article that presents research on the topic. You should provide an overview of the article and then discuss how it relates to the author’s experience.
