"Michael Santos, a federal prisoner now in his eighteenth year of incarceration, has made an outstanding contribution to our understanding of life inside America's prisons."
--George F. Cole, Professor Emeritus, University of Connecticut
"Michael Santos has done two remarkable things: First, he has provided to the general reading public the perspective and experience of a wide range of his fellow inmates, who rarely if ever have a public voice. The language is often crude, vulgar, and hostile; but so is the culture of which it speaks. Second, he has demonstrated the triumph of the human spirit that refuses to let past mistakes or present circumstances have the final say in defining who he is."
--J. Colin Harris, Professor of Religious Studies, Mercer University
"Disturbing as well as uplifting, Inside
sheds light on the darkest corners of the U.S. society. It should be read by all those interested in justice, punishment, and forgiveness."
