  • this book explains the very unique and mythical prison culture. it provides a deep understanding of the reality of prison life and inmates perspective of their environment.

  • For undisclosed reasons, the author is attempting to exonerate the predatory behavior of non-white criminals toward white inmates. Fleisher and other die-hard jewish radical Leftists may think a mob of "oppressed youths" raping a 18 year old white kid caught selling xanax is "justice" for real and imagined past injustices by other white people, but anyone with a soul could not.

  • The author conducted 594 separate interviews with inmates throughout our prison system and claims that not one inmate was raped. His basis? Inmates use sex as barter for protection and goods. Um. Mr. Fleisher. You do realize what "protection" is, correct? When an inmate tells another, "If you don't let me have sex with you, I won't protect you," it means that he's going to rape you or someone else will. Beyond which, even OUTSIDE of prison, rape and sexual assault are extremely common, even in these United States. To believe that not a single inmate interviewed ever experienced sexual assault in prison defies belief.

    Beyond which, none of Fleisher's research is peer-reviewed--so essentially we're taking Fleisher at his word--and he openly admits that his hypothesis was strongly motivated by prior convictions that there was no "real rape problem" in our prison system.

    I'm sorry, but that's a joke. Save your money and buy any other book on the prison system--not the only one that denies the sky is blue.

  • "The Myth of Prison Rape: Sexual Culture in American Prisons" has a self-explanatory title. It's object of critique is a well-established network of organizations and the systematic misunderstandings they generate about sex and sexual assault in prisons and jail. Not surprisingly, most of these myths are around male prison sex and sexuality, the reason for the implicit homophobia surrounding the topic. The authors take on the now large and influential establishment of human rights organizations, typified by Stop Prisoner Rape (SPR), prisoner rights advocates, religious activists and, not least, an extensive network of academics drawn not from research-based disciplines like criminology, sociology, psychology or anthropology, but from literary criticism within departments of literature, and producing writers ideologically blinkered by various schools of post-modernist pseudo-criticism.

    Unlike most contemporary proponents of this myth, the authors base their claims on empirical research rather than on the kinds of admittedly compelling anecdotal testimonials of victims of sexual assault featured in publications by groups like SPR. Yet horrific as genuine cases of sexual assault are, such accounts do not support claims of rampart male on male sexual violence such groups claim exist. "The Myth of Prison Rape" on the other hand did what other studies have not: asked several hundred prisoners themselves about sex and sexuality behind bars. The result is a far more nuanced and varied understanding of prison sex in which forcible rape does occur, but is rare. Which begs the question of how and why it's come to seen as widespread thanks to the activists opposing it. This is when the implicit homophobia behind the issue comes in. It is the general fear of male-on-male sexuality that informs most of this activist misunderstanding. The fact that prison sexuality by definition occurs among hardened criminals, can involve forms of manipulation, and is generally among men of color combine to throw the fear of God into the generally white middle class, educated, heterosexual activists who write about it with a primal fear of being sodomized by a big black man. The fact that this constituency is generally "liberal" or "progressive" make these fears and their manifestation in distorted concepts that much easier to hide. This book is a start toward debunking their illusions.
