    In this disturbing yet elegant exposé of US penitentiaries and their surrounding communities, Sasha Abramsky shows how American prisons have abandoned their long-held ideal of rehabilitation, often for political reasons. After surveying our current state of affairs - life sentences for nonviolent crimes, appalling conditions for inmates, the growth of private prisons, the treatment of juveniles - Abramsky argues that our punitive policies are not only inhuman but deeply counterproductive.
