Abstract

The government’s decision to ban prisoners from receiving books has been widely condemned. In this post Richard Ridyard examines the ongoing controversy surrounding the issue. He argues that the Justice Secretary Chris Grayling’s rationale is confused and contradictory, and that the restrictions are the antithesis of the ‘rehabilitation revolution’ the government has promised.
