Annotation: This study of the Polish prison system describes its organization and administration and shows how far actual practice in the execution of justice differs from the theories laid down in law.
Abstract: The warden lays down the guidelines which may actually be in contradiction to the legal regulations. Lower prison staff feel their work is undervalued, and they tend to be more interested in their status than in the conditions under which prisoners live. Rehabilitative work takes a poor second place to punishment. A total of 17 references are provided. (Author summary modified)
