Synopses & Reviews
Fulfills some or all of the high school national curriculum standards for social studies, English, science, and health.
Since the mid-1970s, the U.S. has turned to increased incarceration to fight crime — more than 2 million Americans are now behind bars in state and federal prisons and jails. Whether increased incarceration has reduced crime, how prisoners are being treated, and the rise of prison labor are among the issues under discussion in this anthology.
