Routledge Revivals: Guards Imprisoned (1989): Correctional Officers at Work by Lucien X. Lombardo

First published in 1989, this book provides an in-depth look into the work and working life of prison guards as they perceive and experience it. The author, a teacher at Auburn Prison, New York, discovered that little was known about the guard's perceptions of his "place" in the prison community and set out to explore the dynamics of this key correctional occupation from the perspective of those who do it. The raw data was provided by over 160 hours of interviews with guards and is presented in the order of a "natural history" - from their prerecruitment images of prison to the search for satisfaction as experienced guards. The book also includes a follow-up with the officers who were originally interviewed in 1976, assessing patterns of change and stability in their attitudes and behaviours.
