Race to Incarcerate by Marc Mauer
Book DescriptionIn this revised version of his seminal book on race, class and the criminal justice system, Marc Mauer, executive director of the United States' leading criminal justice reform organizations, offers the most up-to-date look at three decades of prison expansion in American available. Including newly-written material on recent developments under the Bush administration, and updated statistics, graphs, and charts throughout, the book tells the tragic story of runaway growth in the number of prisons and jails and the over-reliance on imprisonment to stem problems of economic and social development. Called "sober and nuanced" by "Publishers Weekly", "Race to Incarcerate" documents the enormous financial and human toll of the "get tough" movement, and argues for more humane - and productive - alternatives.
