ABSTRACT. Criminology has become a resource plundered by policy entrepreneurs. Countries that are very punitive rely on both high levels of imprisonment as well as the death penalty. Differences in the attitudes of the upper-level administrators and in the institutional history of the facilities help explain why the values and attitudes of prison staffs vary so decisively between prisons. Local communities are often suckered into becoming boosters for a prison and the purported economic windfall does not materialize (Gilmore).
