Summary
The United States' rate of incarceration is the highest in the world. Mauer's Race to Incarcerate is the essential text for understanding the exponential growth of the US prison system, and it has become canonical for those active in the US criminal justice reform movement. Now Sabrina Jones has collaborated with Mauer to adapt his seminal book into a vivid graphic narrative designed to reach a mainstream audience. Jones's dramatic artwork adds passion and compassion to the complex story of four decades of prison expansion and its corrosive effect on society.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Jones channels the tradition of liberal-Left political cartooning to give this graphic documentary a dynamic, woodcut-like look that galvanizes its adaptation of Mauer's tract of the same name. Its subject is imprisonment in the U.S., especially, since the war on drugs was launched in the 1980s, the push to jail as many as possible (as it sometimes seems). Since the opening of the first penitentiary in 1829 and preceded by getting tough on crime policies, the war on drugs has reversed the emphasis on rehabilitation in U.S. prisons. While outlining how the drug war fueled a prison-construction boom, gave the U.S. by far the highest national rate of incarceration in the world, and ensured that more than half those imprisoned are poor blacks and Latinos, Mauer keeps the focus on the politics of crime, a game played with macho glee by both parties. Mauer's original book has been criticized for lacking immediacy (too much passive voice, etc.), but with Jones' inspirational help, this version has plenty of punch. Terrific for current-events teaching, too.--Olson, Ray Copyright 2010 Booklist"
