Read full description of the books In The Belly of The Beast:This was a very interesting book written by a very troubled man, who spent the majority of his life behind bars.I feel that Mr Abbott was troubled most likely in his early life also! Many people have bad or troubled early years and don't resort to lives of crime or fighting authority.
I'm sure that the criminal justice system was a lot different in the 60's than today but the culture of us vs them still apply's today.I believe that even if one is in the joint a person can change if they want,even with the daily fight for survival in prison.
Mr Abbott's thoughts on politics,race, life in prison,survival are most interesting.This book might interest some people and disturb others.Check it out and make up your own mind!!
