Prison Industry, Drug and Gun Trafficking Resources

Easy,

I'm trying to write an article about links between Drug and Gun Trafficking and Prison industries. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of any books, websites, articles, documentaries, groups etc. I would prefer things with a British slant but ANYTHING will be most appreciated. The things in particular would be:

- Drug Trade/War on Drugs; ruling class involvement in drug trafficking

- Gun Trade; ruling class involvement in trafficking guns to working class areas i.e. "Ain't no Uzis made in Harlem!"

- Prison Industry; Prison labour, private prisons

Cheers in advance

well, i expect you've already checked, but just encase there's the campaign against prison slavery website, in particular the prison slavery section: http://www.enrager.net/hosted/caps/modules.php?name=News&new_topic=10, the companies section http://www.enrager.net/hosted/caps/modules.php?name=News&new_topic=2, and the wilkinson section http://www.enrager.net/hosted/caps/modules.php?name=News&new_topic=2. there's also more general stuff in the prison section accessible on the menu bar to the left. the prison activist resource center also probably has a load of resources, but i can't remember the address.
