Fängelsebråk. Analyser av konflikter på anstalt

Wästerfors, David LU (2007)
Abstract
Massmedia sometimes report on quarrels, riots or violent escapes in prisons. This book takes the reader behind the headlines in order to present interviewed inmates' and staff members own descriptions and reflections on "jail quarrels". The author shows how the enforced intimacy of modern prisons creates peculiar patterns of both 'fighting mood' and its opposite: containment or 'prison stillness'. Interactionist analyses are developed out of Erving Goffman, Georg Simmel and Randall Collins. The book also contains a discussion on earlier prison research on conflicts.
