Inferno by Robert A. Ferguson Inferno, Hardback (March 2014)

Robert Ferguson diagnoses all parts of a massive, out-of-control punishment regime. Turning the spotlight on the plight of prisoners, he asks the American people, Do we want our prisons to be this way? Acknowledging the suffering of prisoners and understanding what punishers do when they punish are the first steps toward a better, more just system.

Alone in America by Robert A. Ferguson Alone in America, Hardback (January 2013)

With more people living alone today than at any time in U.S. history, Ferguson investigates loneliness in American fiction, from its mythological beginnings in Rip Van Winkle to the postmodern terrors of 9/11. At issue is the dark side of a trumpeted American individualism. Ferguson shows that we can learn, from our literature, how to live alone.

Trial in American Life by Robert A. Ferguson Trial in American Life, Paperback (September 2008)

Traces the legal meaning and cultural implications of prominent American trials across the history of the nation. This book shows how courtrooms are forced to cope with unresolved communal anxieties and how they sometimes make legal decisions that change the way Americans think about themselves.
