John Moore contributes a fascinating account of the innovative work of Alexander Maconochie, a prison governor on the Norfolk Island penal settlement in Australia, and at Birmingham prison in the mid 19th century. Many of his ideas, including conditional rewards, reducing offending on release, and developing meaningful work, can be seen echoing down the years to this very day. His eventual failure also stands as a poignant warning to those who follow in his footsteps.
