Connecticut Prisoner Rights is a brand new 232 page book produced by the Connecticut Civil Liberties Union and the Jerome Frank Legal Services Organization of Yale Law School. A group effort by Peter Stern and numerous other law students and attorneys, the end result is a concise, well organized book that gives a detailed overview of the rights of Connecticut state prisoners under federal and state law. While aimed at Connecticut state prisoners, the book's discussion of prisoners' substantive rights (mail, prison conditions, medical care, etc.) provide a good starting point for people interested in these topics. Every Connecticut state prisoner and their family members and attorneys should have a copy of this book. The book is not a "how to litigate" guide. Copies are $4 for prisoners; $15 for non prisoners and $25 hardbound. Order from: CCLU, 32 Grand St. Hartford, CT 06106.
