This is a singular work. It is the first attempt to correlate the prison discipline codes of the United States of America and Great Britain. Dr. Marin had the good (or ill) fortune to begin his prolonged period of study in the subject at a time when the British authorities and learning on the subject suddenly blossomed. It will come as a surprise to many American lawyers to learn that the case law, particularly in England, was, until a few years ago, minute.
Practitioners and academics on both sides of the Atlantic will read this work with advantage. It stands in the line of those great pieces of research which have added to the jurisprudence of the two great common-law jurisdictions. It is a work which will be read with pleasure and profit not only in this edition, but (as I feel certain) in the many future editions into which this work will run.
