Summary
Since first published in 2011, Captive Genders, a groundbreaking account of trans and genderqueer people within the prison industrial complex, has become a highly regarded resource and valuable touchstone for incarcerated LGBTQ people and their allies. The first book of its kind, it has been highly praised by gender theorists and prison abolitionists alike, including Angela Davis. With highly publicised cases such as that of Chelsea Manning and media interest in the likes of Laverne Cox and Caitlyn Jenner, this new edition could hardly be timelier. Includes four new essays.
