฿ Format Kindle [ ╢ Locked In: The True Causes of Mass Incarceration—and How to Achieve Real Reform ] ᙎ Kindle Ebook By John Pfaff ᢉ Pfaff, let there be no doubt, is a reformerNonetheless, he believes that the standard story popularized in particular by Michelle Alexander, in her influential book, The New Jim Crow is false We are desperately in need of reform, he insists, but we must reform the right things, and address the true problem Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker In the extremely important book, Locked In The True Causes of Mass Incarceration and How to Achieve Real Reform, John F Pfaff analyzes why America incarcerates people than ever even as crime rates continue to fall he also makes a compelling case that incarceration disrupts the lives of the incarcerated and their families long after they have served their time Wall Street Journal With rigor and specificity, John Pfaff sifts through the data to mount a convincing case about the causes of mass incarceration and the levers by which we can undo it A must read for anyone who dreams of an America that is not the world s most imprisoned nation Chris Hayes, host of All In with Chris Hayes and author of A Colony in a

In gives us some ideas for how we might fix it National Review An excellent overview of where America stands in regard to its prisons, and Pfaff s proposed reforms deserve serious consideration across

with a better understanding of the complexity of the problem and the need for solutions New York Journal of Books In Locked In, Pfaff plays a Socrates of criminal justice reform, interrogating all the main tenets of the Standard Story and eviscerating them with scores of data Pacific Standard Timely and authoritative, Pfaff s discussion of mass incarceration provides a valuable and accessible addition to the prison reform narrative and an excellent analysis of the U.S criminal justice system Library Journal Pfaff makes a powerful case that the war on drugs has had very little effect on incarceration rates overall, or racial disparities in prison specifically New York Review of BooksA groundbreaking examination of our system of imprisonment, revealing the true causes of mass incarceration as well as the best path to reformIn the 1970s, the United States had an incarceration rate comparable to those of other liberal democracies and that rate had held steady for over 100 years Yet today, though the US is home to only about 5 percent of the world s population, we hold nearly one quarter of its prisoners Mass incarceration is now widely considered one of the biggest social and political crises of our age How did we get to this point Locked In is a revelatory investigation into the root causes of mass incarceration by one of the most exciting scholars in the country Having spent fifteen years studying the data on imprisonment, John Pfaff takes apart the reigning consensus created by Michelle Alexander and other reformers, revealing that the most widely accepted explanations the failed War on Drugs, draconian sentencing laws, an increasing reliance on private prisons tell us much less than we think Pfaff urges us to look at other factors instead, including a major shift in prosecutor behavior that occurred in the mid 1990s, when prosecutors began bringing felony charges against arrestees about twice as often as they had before He describes a fractured criminal justice system, in which counties don t pay for the people they send to state prisons, and in which white suburbs set law and order agendas for heavily minority cities And he shows that if we hope to significantly reduce prison populations, we have no choice but to think differently about how to deal with people convicted of violent crimes and why some people are violent in the first place An authoritative, clear eyed account of a national catastrophe, Locked In transforms our understanding of what ails the American system of punishment and ultimately forces us to reconsider how we can build a equitable and humane society.
