From the passage of Bill C-10, with its punitive, tough-on-crime
provisions, to sensationalist media accounts of dangerous ex-convicts,
it is evident that Canada is a country that is taking an increasingly
hard line on crime. In reality the vast majority of prisoners who serve
out their sentences will never see the inside of a prison cell again.
On the Outside explores the post-carceral lives of men who
have successfully resettled into the community after serving at least a
decade in Canada's penitentiaries. Exploring the transition from
imprisonment to the challenges of resettlement, this book will change
the way you think about prisoners and open up the debate on the perils
of tough-on-crime legislation.
