Description - Lockdown America by Christian Parenti

Why is criminal justice so central to American politics? "Lockdown America" not only documents the horrors and absurdities of militarized policing, prisons, a fortified border, and the federalization of the war on crime, it also explains the political and economic history behind the massive crackdown. This fully updated and expanded edition includes an afterword on the War on Terror, a meditation on surveillance and the specter of terrorism as they help reanimate the criminal justice attack. Written in vivid prose, "Lockdown America" will propel readers toward a deeper understanding of the links between crime and politics in a period of gathering economic crisis.
