Mauer, Marc, Chesney-Lind, Meda


In a series of newly commissioned essays from the leading scholars and advocates in criminal justice, Invisible Punishment explores, for the first time, the far-reaching consequences of our current 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. This book looks at the consequences of these policies twenty years later.Essays include: -- Jeremy Travis on the little-known, life-long consequences of a felony conviction-- Beth Richie on the coming of age of a generation of children raised with imprisoned parents-- Bruce Western on the disastrous employment consequences of incarceration for young black men-- Todd Clear on problems created by pulling vast numbers of young men from low-income communities-- Paul Farmer on disease epidemics begun and perpetuated in prisons-- Judy Greene on the warped incentive structure of for-profit prisonsMauer, Marc is the author of 'Invisible Punishment: The Collateral Consequences of Mass Imprisonment' with ISBN 9781565847262 and ISBN 1565847261.
