"Doing Time" describes life in a maximum security prison, as experienced by first-time prisoners. The study is based on a collaboration between an inmate-sociology graduate student and a sociologist. The analysis presented focuses on the phenomenological experience of the prison world and the consequent adaptations and transformations that it evokes. "Doing Time" is not an expose on prison conditions; it is an intimate view of a maximum security prison and its effects on new inmates.
