Federal Prison Handbook

$49.95

491 pages. The Federal Prison Handbook, by Christopher Zoukis, is the definitive guide to surviving incarceration in a federal prison. This handbook teaches individuals facing incarceration, prisoners who are already inside, and their friends and family everything they need to know to protect themselves and their rights. The thorough information was compiled by someone who has first-hand experience with the federal prison system, as Zoukis is an advocate currently serving time at a federal prison. His insider’s view of this unknown world guides inmates through the mental stresses of confinement.

In detailed chapters broken down by topical areas, readers discover:

  • What to expect on the day you’re admitted to prison, and how to greet cellmates for the first time
  • What to do about sexual harassment or assault
  • The best ways to avoid fights, and the options that provide the greatest protection if a fight cannot be avoided
  • Medical, psychological and religious services
  • How to communicate with the outside world through telephones, computers and mail.
  • What you can buy in the official commissary and the underground economy
  • How to avoid scams, schemes, theft, and other problems
  • Comprehensive analysis of Federal Bureau of Prisons policy and regulatory guidelines

And much more!

Importantly, this text provides detailed instructions on how prisoners can protect their rights. The author is a college-educated prisoner who has fought extensively to preserve his rights and the rights of other prisoners.
