The United States' rate of incarceration is the highest in the world. Mauer's Race to Incarcerate is the essential text for understanding the exponential growth of the US prison system, and it has become canonical for those active in the US criminal justice reform movement. Now Sabrina Jones has collaborated with Mauer to adapt his seminal book into a vivid graphic narrative designed to reach a mainstream audience. Jones's dramatic artwork adds passion and compassion to the complex story of four decades of prison expansion and its corrosive effect on society.
Marc Mauer is one of the country's leading experts on sentencing policy, race and the criminal justice system. Race to Incarcerate, Mauer's groundbreaking book on how sentencing policies led to the explosive expansion of the U.S. prison population.
