Mothering from the Inside: Parenting in a Women's Prison  ( Suny Series, Women, Crime & Criminology )

Contributor(s): Enos, Sandra (Author)
Binding: Paperback
Pub Date: October 19, 2000
(Note from the bookstore: This book is, perhaps, more of a sociology study than a how to parent book.)
Publisher Marketing: The majority of female inmates are also mothers of children under the age of eighteen. These women don t stop being mothers when they receive a prison sentence, but in fact try a variety of means to maintain motherhood and mothering while away from their children. Based on research conducted in a women s prison, Mothering from the Inside reveals how inmate mothers find places for their children to live, manage relationships with caregivers, demonstrate their fitness as mothers, and negotiate rights to their children under challenging circumstances. The impact of race, ethnicity, and marginality on women in prison is traced through the development of the women s motherhood careers."
Review Quotes:

The author has identified a subject which is of important concern for mothers in prison and their children in the community.
