    1. I ve read many books on the prison industrial complex, and this book only made me angrier at our system of justics and the hundreds of millions of dollars we waste building prisons, refusing to provide treatment vs incarceration, and the alarming fact that many rural areas depend on prisons to survive economically, so they lobby governemnts to enact longer prison sentences and harsher penalties to keep the jails full and the money rolling in This book clearly explains the problems and shows how [...]

    2. Another difficult but necessary read for those interested in how we treat others in this society and how we actually create criminals for profit.

    3.

    4. definitely offers a comprehensive insight into the corruption in america s incarceration system, with many case studies and poignant examples although this occasionally gets a little cumbersome to read fantastic grasp of issue, evocative subject matter, serves its purpose of highlighting the long overdue issue well.

    5. Powerful Well written, meticulously researched, unbiased, insightful Elsner shows us a broken system that affects us all.
