This chapter considers how convict criminologists offer something new and distinctive to criminology in general, and the study of imprisonment in particular. Inspired by C Wright Mills classic work, The Sociological Imagination, its point of departure is his advocacy for sociological craftwork that links personal biography with social history, and personal experience with social structures. The chapter discusses the role of reflexivity in this project and presents personal reflections on imprisonment, masculinities and ethics.

Keywords:   C Wright Mills, reflexivity, masculinities, social history, personal biography, imprisonment, ethics, crimonology
