Prison Nation: The Warehousing of America's Poor by Tara Herivel (Author), Paul Wright (Author)


First Published in 2003. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an Informa company. Prison Nation goes beyond the numbers to show the complex, interwoven reasons that have produced the prison-industrial complex. In every section of the book... readers will find solid reporting, gripping writing, and political revelation. -- Ken Silverstein, from the Preface This riveting collection makes a compelling case that the United States has an INjustice system at work and that it operates its own gulag within this supposedly free society, largely out of sight of its citizenry.


The brutalities, cruelties, and inhumanity widely prevalent in the way people are put in prison kept there, degraded, and mistreated, as recounted in this book's accounts of racist bias, medical care, prison labor, parole, rape, and the restraint chair, among many other topics, read like something out of Kafka and Solzenhitzyn. This important book is a shocker. -- Edward S. Herman, co-author of Manufacturing Consent
