How do identity and social circumstances affect experiences of the criminal legal system in the US?
It’s no secret that factors such as race and socio-economic status will affect a person’s experience of life, and contact with the criminal legal system is no different. Drawing on the author’s own experience of jail and the criminal legal system, as well as academic literature in the field of carceral studies, this book explores how pre-existing inequities play out and reproduce themselves.
Ideal reading for students of Incarceration Studies, Black Studies, African American Studies, Sociology, Cultural History, American Studies, Criminology and Interdisciplinary Studies, this book explores and illustrates the disparities encountered in the criminal legal system of the United States.
