Both a manual for the prison physician and a potential guide for the prison administrator. The first section, "Health Needs and Services for Prisoners," is well balanced between concepts and data. The second section concerns management of common health problems of prisoners. The specifics of the approach to the patient and the pharmacotherapy of disease are sufficiently detailed that they could be used by a well-trained third-year medical student. Final section on the administration of a prison health service. Recommended for prison hospitals, prison physicians, and prison administrators.
