Prison Etiquette: The Convict's Compendium of Useful Information, by The Inmates
This is a noteworthy book. It is a collection of articles, memoirs, stories, drawings, and poems dealing with their prison experience by some fourteen conscientious objectors who for one reason or another could not or were not permitted to take advantage of the exemption and alternative service offered under the law. What they have to say is of first importance to every one concerned with the fate of the “idealist” in organized society, and they say it with such precision, with such utter lack of sentimentality or self-pity, and on the whole with such fairness, that their accounts carry conviction beyond mere factual reliability. With but few exceptions, the writing is clear and forceful, and the typography—the book was hand set and printed by the editors—is quite superior.
