Abstract:     
This Article examines the connections between prisons and violence outside of prison. Incorporating analyses of ethnographic data, prison studies, and prison literature, it argues that whether the source is gang bosses or religious leaders in prison, released prisoners, or even prison guards, civilians are targets and victims of prison-related violence. The work also offers a set of policy measures that integrates the two major streams of thought on prison reform, namely external reforms (legislative & sentencing) and internal reforms (prisoners’ rights).
