This book confronts and challenges many preconceived ideas held about prisoners and prisons.
The Queen vs Trenton Oldfield: A Prison Diary is a timely exposé of a personal experience of British ‘justice’ and incarceration. It brings together insightful ‘inside’ information, images, critical articles and related documents in a provocative consideration of the role of prisons, dissent and the culture of elitism shaping 21st century Britain.
Trenton Oldfield was sentenced to 6 months’ imprisonment at HM Wormwood Scrubs for a peaceful direct action protest to draw attention to the long standing and entirely unjust inequalities in British society that are being severely exacerbated by government cuts and the culture of elitism.
"A thoughtful, illuminating and timely book. Raises important questions about the ethics and efficacy of the British criminal justice system. Alongside this narrative is a selection of essays by other writers, exploring what is perhaps the most alarming issue highlighted by Oldfield's protest and punishment: the ongoing criminalization of protest in British society." Thom Carter, archivist, Bishopsgate Institute
