In this book, Janet Chan examines the origins of the Release on Licence program of the early 1980's, providing a detailed analysis of the scheme and of the theories of prison reform, decarceration and social control which lay behind its introduction into New South Wales prisons. The dramatic termination of the scheme is also reviewed, exploring the reasons for its failure and the implications for penal reform in the following years.
