9781595585417: Race to Incarcerate: A Graphic Retelling

"Do not underestimate the power of the book you are holding in your hands."
Michelle Alexander


More than 2 million people are now imprisoned in the United States, producing the highest rate of incarceration in the world. How did this happen? As the director of The Sentencing Project, Marc Mauer has long been one of the country’s foremost experts on sentencing policy, race, and the criminal justice system. His book Race to Incarcerate has become the essential text for understanding the exponential growth of the U.S. prison system; Michelle Alexander, author of the bestselling The New Jim Crow, calls it "utterly indispensable." Now, Sabrina Jones, a member of the World War 3 Illustrated collective and an acclaimed author of politically engaged comics, has collaborated with Mauer to adapt and update the original book into a vivid and compelling comics narrative. Jones's dramatic artwork adds passion and compassion to the complex story of the penal system’s shift from rehabilitation to punishment and the ensuing four decades of prison expansion, its interplay with the devastating "War on Drugs," and its corrosive effect on generations of Americans.

With a preface by Mauer and a foreword by Alexander, Race to Incarcerate: A Graphic Retelling presents a compelling argument about mass incarceration’s tragic impact on communities of color if current trends continue, one of every three black males and one of every six Latino males born today can expect to do time in prison. The race to incarcerate is not only a failed social policy, but also one that prevents a just, diverse society from flourishing.

About the Author :

Sabrina Jones is the author of Isadora Duncan: A Graphic Biography and a contributor to World War 3 Illustrated, Wobblies!, The Real Cost of Prisons, Studs Terkel’s Working (The New Press), FDR and the New Deal for Beginners, Yiddishkeit, and Radical Jesus. She lives in Brooklyn, New York. Marc Mauer is the executive director of The Sentencing Project in Washington, D.C. He is the author of Race to Incarcerate, a semifinalist for the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, and the co-editor, with Meda Chesney-Lind, of Invisible Punishment (both available from The New Press). He lives in the Washington, D.C., area. Michelle Alexander is the author of the New York Times bestseller The New Jim Crow.

From Booklist :

Jones channels the tradition of liberal-Left political cartooning to give this graphic documentary a dynamic, woodcut-like look that galvanizes its adaptation of Mauer’s tract of the same name. Its subject is imprisonment in the U.S., especially, since the war on drugs was launched in the 1980s, the push to jail as many as possible (as it sometimes seems). Since the opening of the first “penitentiary” in 1829 and preceded by “getting tough on crime” policies, the war on drugs has reversed the emphasis on rehabilitation in U.S. prisons. While outlining how the drug war fueled a prison-construction boom, gave the U.S. by far the highest national rate of incarceration in the world, and ensured that more than half those imprisoned are poor blacks and Latinos, Mauer keeps the focus on the politics of crime, a game played with macho glee by both parties. Mauer’s original book has been criticized for lacking immediacy (too much passive voice, etc.), but with Jones’ inspirational help, this version has plenty of punch. Terrific for current-events teaching, too. --Ray Olson

Description du livre New Press, The. Paperback. État : New. Paperback. 128 pages. The United States rate of incarceration is the highest in the world.
