Surviving In Solitary

A MANUAL WRITTEN BY AND FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN CONTROL UNITS, AFSC

Brief Description:
The federal penitentiary in Marion, Illinois, went on permanent lock down in 1983. This created the first "control unit." Now some forty states have built these "maxi-maxi" prisons - representations of the angry and cruel repression that grips our country today. Human beings are put alone in a small cell with double steel doors and no window for 23 hours a day. No program, no work, no education, meals alone, and maybe one hour by oneself in a bare dog-run outside. A religious task force calls such conditions psychological pain and agony tantamount to torture, now, in the following pages, people who are captives in these cells write about what goes on and how you can survive.
