Specifications
Indubitably, the United States leads the world in mass incarceration. The U.S. is also exporting its retributivist and anti-terror ideologies overseas, feeding into nations’ moral panic from France, through Malawi, to South Africa. While it is important to analyze the North American punishment industry, often called prison industrial complex by prison critics, one can no longer afford to ignore global trends of punishment models. Therefore, contributors to this volume explain how the US prison complex has expanded globally, throughout many developing nation states, backed by private security companies and drug and juvenile justice legislation.
