Rate this:
This work is an expose of the U.S. prison system. it tells how more than 2 million Americans came to be incarcerated, what it's really like on the inside, and how a giant "prison-industrial complex" promotes imprisonment over other solutions. The author takes the reader inside "supermax" prisons that deny inmates human contact and reveals official corruption and brutality within U.S. jails. The book also teaches how prisons help to spread infectious diseases throughout society, one of the ways the prison crisis touches even those who have never had a brush with the law.
