"This book is a composite of how the Indiana Department of Correction attempts to comply with the courts, the state constitution, and the ever-swinging philosophical pendulum. We provide public safety while preparing the offenders for their eventual return to the streets." -from The Author's "Introduction"

"Ed was uniquely qualified to write this book. Unfortunately, he did not live long enough to finish and publish it. ...I prepared it for publication by The Edwin Mellen Press. With 36 years of experience, Ed's collection of essays speaks to us actively. It gives us unprecedented insight into the world of the Indiana Department of Correction's Commissioner. His work is a living history, and he is undoubtedly the only Commissioner in the history of the I.D.O.C. to publish his experiences." -Dr. William Hinkle, "Foreword"
