practice driving theory – rather than the reverse (theory driving practice)
This will be a web site that explores the Hx and practices of facilities meant to contain the most marginal members of society. They include, but are not “confined” (no pun intended) to prisons, reform schools, mental hospitals, etc – all of a genre that is created (often in anger or retribution – with little or no basis in fact or in empirical research. The theories that justify these entities appear after the fact – virtually never before they happen or become policy.
