Summary
  • "This book addresses widespread social assumptions associating crime and the imprisonment of African American men"--Provided by publisher
  • "This tightly argued and methodologically sound volume addresses widespread social assumptions associating crime and African-American men. An exploration of the criminal justice system in America today and its impact on young African-American males, this book challenges the linking of crime and race and the conservative anti-welfare, hard-oncrime agenda. Jerry Miller has spent a lifetime studying and challenging our criminal justice system. He has worked to make it more progressive and more just. He has watched as it turned into a system of segregation and control for many Americans of color. That is the story told here in condemning devastating detail"--Provided by publisher
