Summary
This volume studies the social order of the prison underworld to understand how extra-legal institutions form, operate, and evolve. It uses economics to explore the secret world of the convict culture, inmate hierarchy, and prison gang politics. It uses economics to explain why prison gangs form, how they interact with formal institutions, and how they influence crime beyond prison walls. Economics explains the seemingly irrational, truly astonishing, and often tragic world of prison life
