Punishment in America

"In Punishment in America Michael Welch gathers together his seminal contributions to the most crucial and controversial issues in criminal justice. Topics range from the war on drugs, boot camps and institutional violence, to AIDS and HIV, capital punishment and the entire corrections industry."

"This coherent, but critical vision of punishment and corrections emphasizes social control but takes account of key social forces such as politics, religion and morality."
