Excerpt from Should Prisoners Work?: A Study of the Prison Labor Problem in the United States

In this study I have made an effort to explain the gap between the theory and the practice of employing our prisoners. It is necessary to have a goal toward which we may strive, but it is equally important to check up from time to time on what we are actually doing. The checking-up process not only stimulates us to further activity but also enables us to view the goal in a truer perspective. Social reformers, it seems to me, often allow their minds to advance from goal to goal without always realizing that in sober fact and practice their first objective has never been attained.

I owe much to those who have helped me in the writing of the book.
