Inmates assume different roles during the course of incarceration to survive the pains of imprisonment. It is believed that women feel the pains of imprisonment more harshly than males because of the difficulty in being separated from their family and children. Adaptations to the prison environment differ according to sex, yet, both sexes can succumb to prisonization.

In examining the differences in prisonization and survival strategies between the sexes, research finds that male inmates often enlist as gang members for protection, while women recreate family for emotional support. This book discusses the psychological implications of being incarcerated and the patterns and prospects of imprisonment. (Imprint: Nova)
