The last few chapters of The Crisis of Imprisonment seem like another book altogether, as McLennan recounts Osborne's controversial attempts to instill "self-government" among convicts in New York's Auburn and Sing Sing prisons. The establishment of these prisons' "Mutual Welfare Leagues" and prison newspapers is a compelling tale, but the thread of McLennan's central argument about labour gets buried under in a morass of detail about Osborne's experiments with "new, nonlaboring forms of discipline." Too much of this latter part of the book bogs down in a needlessly lengthy account of the political factionalism besetting New York prison reform efforts, a battle that touched off a riot by inmates in the state's notorious Sing Sing prison in 1913.
