Overview

Mosaic of Despair describes the variety of stress transactions that occur in a setting—the prison—which is intended to be uncomfortable or punitive. The study offers an unprecedented opportunity to view stress and personal crises in a real life context. This context has public policy relevance, because an increasing number of citizens must face confinement, and the problems it presents.

Revised and updated from a publication previously published by Aldine Publishing Company.
