Prisoners Of Politics: Breaking The Cycle Of Mass Incarceration. Rachel Elise Barkow * Academic Trade 304 Pages 5-1/2 X 8-1/4 Inches Belknap Press World Related Subjects Law: Criminal Law: General Political Science: American Government: General Social Science: Penology Law: Government: General Political Science: Public Policy: Social Policy Educators: Request An Online Exam Copy About This Book About The Author(s) Reviews Table Of Contents On The Center For American Progress Podcast Thinking Cap, Listen To Rachel Barkow And New York Times Staff Writer Emily Bazelon Consider System-upending Ways To End The Cycle Of Mass Incarcerationincluding How To Insulate Criminal Justice Reform From Political Influence Or Populist Whims: America's Criminal Justice Policy Reflects Irrational Fears Stoked By Politicians Seeking To Win Election. A Preeminent Legal Scholar Argues That Reform Guided By Evidence, Not Politics And Emotions, Will Reduce Crime And Reverse Mass Incarceration. The United States Has The World's Highest Rate Of Incarceration, A Form Of Punishment That Ruins Lives And Makes A Return To Prison More Likely. As Awful As That Truth Is For Individuals And Their Families, Its Social Consequencesrecycling Offenders Through An Overwhelmed Criminal Justice System, Ever-mounting Costs, Unequal Treatment Before The Law, And A Growing Class Of Permanently Criminalized Citizensare Even More Devastating. With The Authority Of A Prominent Legal Scholar And The Practical Insights Gained Through On-the-ground Work On Criminal Justice Reform, Rachel Barkow Explains How Dangerous It Is To Base Criminal Justice Policy On The Whims Of The Electorate, Which Puts Judges, Sheriffs, And Politicians In Office. Instead, She Argues For An Institutional Shift Toward Data And Expertise, Following The Model Used To Set Food And Workplace Safety Rules. Barkow's Prescriptions Are Rooted In A Thorough And Refreshingly Ideology-free Cost-benefit Analysis Of How To Cut Mass Incarceration While Maintaining Public Safety. She Points To Specific Policies That Are Deeply Problematic On Moral Grounds And Have Failed To End The Cycle Of Recidivism. Her Concrete Proposals Draw On The Best Empirical Information Available To Prevent Crime And Improve The Reentry Of Former Prisoners Into Society. Prisoners Of Politics Aims To Free Criminal Justice Policy From The Political Arena, Where It Has Repeatedly Fallen Prey To Irrational Fears And Personal Interest, And Demonstrates That A Few Simple Changes Could Make Us All Safer.
