Elsner presents an extraordinary, comprehensive, shocking expose of the American prison system. With more than two million inmates, the impact of this topic reaches far into the general population to family members, citizens, and human rights activists. Readers learn why the prison epidemic matters to them, even if they've never met anyone who's gone to jail, and learn what it's really like on the inside with racial gangs, corruption, and sickness.
