Description
"In this lively and bracing book, Joe Davey points to the underlying connections between shrinking social policy budgets and rapidly rising prison budgets. Each provide a kind of solution: social policies ameliorate poverty by reducing want and expanding opportunities; criminal policies "solve" the problem of poverty by labeling and incarcerating ever-larger numbers of people. His argument is a chilling and convincing commentary on contemporary American politics, and it needs to be read." - Frances Fox Piven The City University of New York
