Editorial Reviews


Tranquil Prisons is an important contribution to the studies of mental health and related institutions. It would make an excellent read for the general public, government administrators or researchers, academics, and postsecondary courses that deal with health and illness, social control, social organization of health, or legal studies at the sophomore or senior levels of study.’ (Gary Barron Canadian Journal of Sociology, vol 37:03:2012)


‘I commend Erick Fabris on his achievement with Tranquil Prisons, an engaging combination of scholarship, analysis, and call to action and mobilization. It is rare for a “survivor account” to provide such a systematic investigation into an aspect of contemporary psychiatric practice. I must emphasize the importance of Tranquil Prisons for those within the policy, practice, and academic communities. Well organized and accessible, it should also prove a useful text for lay readers.’ (Erica Burman, Department of Psychology, Discourse Unit/Research Institute of Health and Social Change, Manchester Metropolitan University)
