Summary
"The use of incarceration in the United States has increased five-fold since 1973. Twenty-nine percent of black males born today can expect to be imprisoned in their lifetime." "Race to Incarcerate tells the chilling story of this unprecedented explosion in the prison population, demonstrating how the dramatic expansion of prisons and jails has failed to have any substantial impact on crime." "Exploring the intersection of race and class that underpins current politics and crime policy. Race to Incarcerate traces the political history of these developments and shows how, ultimately, we still blame and punish the least fortunate for America's social problems."--BOOK JACKET
