dc.description.abstract In the nineteenth century, prison became the dominant form of punishment for criminals, as capital and corporal measures were phased out and crime began to be thought of as a national, rather than a local, problem that demanded a national solution. Richard Ireland’s detailed investigation into the operation of a local Welsh jail between 1840 and 1877 is a revealing account of the relationship between the jail, its staff and prisoners, and the community as well as a thorough exploration of the reasons for and resistances to the growth of the penal system. en
