Punishment explores the far-reaching consequences of US criminal justice policies. Adopted as part of "get tough on crime" attitudes that prevailed in the 1980s and '90s, a range of strategies, from "three strikes" and "a war on drugs," to mandatory sentencing and prison privatization, have resulted in the mass incarceration of American citizens, and have had enormous effects not just on wrong-doers, but on their families and the communities they come from.

When Dr. John Snow first traced an outbreak of cholera to a water pump in the Soho district of London in 1854, the field of epidemiology was born. Taking the same public health approaches and tools that have successfully tracked epidemics of flu, tuberculosis, and AIDS over the intervening one hundred and fifty years, Ernest Drucker makes the case that our current unprecedented level of imprisonment has become an epidemic...

A question of freedom : a memoir of survival, learning, and coming of age in prison / R. Dwayne Betts.

An ex-con author describes his time in prison after his conviction for carjacking at the age of sixteen, and relates his quest for identity--one that guaranteed his survival in jail and incorporated an understanding of how his own past led to the moment of his crime
A quest for identity-one that guarantees Dwayne's survival in a hostile environment and that incorporates an understanding of how his own past led to the moment of his crime.
Part of my excitement about the younger writers is that we’re coming into our own without any recognizable black political agenda—there isn’t a Jim Crow politics, Civil Rights movement, or black power movement that undergirds what we do with our art, and as a consequence we all have to deal with blackness in a different way. We have to deal with our politics in a different way, more nuance, more complicated.
