The term “gadfly” was used by Plato in The Apology to describe Socrates’s relationship to the Athenian political scene, which he compared to a slow and dimwitted horse.

While it is still early yet, I have an announcement to make concerning my book Education Behind Bars: A Win-Win Strategy for Maximum Security. As you know, Sunbury Press published this title in early 2012 to rave reviews from the prison presses. Since its publication, we’ve been approached by several publishers, who are enthusiastic to give this project new life and enhanced exposure; two of which are McFarland and Company and Prisology. I’d like to touch upon both today.
As you know from previous posts, I decided to divide Education Behind Bars into two books: one for academics and one for prisoners. This way both texts could be completely revised and updated, then more effectively marketed to their target markets. Well, the revisions are now complete on both books and publishing contracts have been signed for both, too.
McFarland and Company picked up the academic book and are publishing it under the title College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons. And Prisology has picked up the prisoner correspondence guide, which is tentatively titled College for the Incarcerated. Both publishers seem enthusiastic about the projects.
If you’re interested in the academic version (for the general public and law makers), please head over to McFarland and Company’s sales page for College for Convicts, where you can pre-order your copy today. This book will be out either late this year or early next year.
As all of you know, several months ago, I signed a contract with McFarland and Company for my book on college for prisoners, College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons. This book presents the current state of prison education, the reasons why policymakers and the American public should support higher education
