The truth is, however, that the vast majority ofprisoners who serve out their sentences do not re-offend, but ratherreintegrate into society and never see the inside of a prison cellagain. Why, then, is there such a lack of focus on successfulresettlement -- not only by politicians and journalists but also incriminology research?

This silence regarding those who makegood perpetuates the illusion of the dangerousex-convict and renders invisible the complex and sometimestreacherous path out of prison. On the Outside illuminatesthat journey, exploring the post-carceral lives of men who havesuccessfully resettled into the community after serving at least adecade in Canadas penitentiaries.

Discussing the transition fromimprisonment, release, and re-entry through to the challenges ofresettlement, this book will change the way you think aboutCanadas prisoners and open up the debate on the perils oftough-on-crime legislation.Melissa Munn is a professor in the Sociology andInterdisciplinary Studies Departments at Okanagan College.Chris Bruckert is a professor in the Department ofCriminology at the University of Ottawa.
