The first prisons were in the dungeons of empires and castles, places of neglect and sheer oblivion. The book traces the stories of inmates and staff, political regimes and the rise and fall of empires, all seen through the prison walls. The history of prisons, as is often noted, throws light on the human political and state structures, which generated punishments, which have taken away individual freedom, sometimes with a degree of humanitarian concern, and sometimes with sheer barbarism.
