Abstract: A report on the growing trend of life imprisonment as a method of social control. A greater prevalence of indeterminate sentencing, as well as a reduction of the use of parole have helped to erode the status and quality of life for "lifers," who are more likely to be held in conditions far below international human rights standards.
