This article is absolutely terrible. It's all about "theories of incarceration" and has nothing to say about the prison reform movement of the 1960s and 70s. This is one of the worst articles i've seen on wikipedia. this is horrible i can't believe this web site.

True, this article is missing vital parts, but I find the "Theories of incarceration" section very informative. Should it be renamed? 22.214.171.124 13:38, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
- Perhaps moved. I'm pretty certain there's another article on the subject. However, the theories of incarceration section doesn't cite any sources, although you could probably find sources for it.
I moved a large portion of the article -- that which dealth with the goals of imprisonment -- to the general article on prisons. PSlave 01:13, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
If you can, please add to these topics:
- History of prison reform (with specific examples, like reform at Westgate prison).

Removed wealthy, though she married a banker (a distant cousin of the chocolate Frys); he later went bankrupt. Also she was not the earliest British prison reformer, John Howard in the 1700s was earlier.
Removed visiting imprisoned Quakers, because she wasn't (except possibly incidently)--Erp 02:07, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
If any one want to start on this before I find the time, I think there is enough information out there to have a section about research . Some promising intros:
Center for Crime and Justice Studies at Kings College London questions reliability of Home Office research into crime reduction. http://www.kcl.ac.uk/depsta/rel/ccjs/pr-accurate-research-2006.html
Vitamin and fatty acid supplements may reduce antisocial behavior in incarcerated young adults. Randomized controlled trial and double bind. (a widely acknowledged 'high quality' study, which the Home offices has just ignored.) http://ebmh.bmjjournals.com/cgi/content/full/6/2/41 http://www.fabresearch.org/view_item.aspx?item_id=421 this is strange...... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:25, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure if it belongs in this article or another, but here's an interesting study on what motivates primates to punish. -- SpareSimian (talk) 12:53, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
If anyone's interested, a new wikiproject has been proposed for the creation and improvement of articles regarding specific prisons, internment camps, and detention centers here.--Cdogsimmons (talk) 04:55, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
