Editorial Reviews

Review

How does one begin to unwind the weft of fear, anger, and misrepresentation of the Black American male? It is impossible to go three consecutive days without the murder of a Black man by ‘mistake’ and ‘misrepresentation,’ yet clearly on purpose. Multiple incarcerations of Black men happen consistently, with blatant comparison to White men who serve no time for similar crimes. This book begins the task of historicizing, documenting, and positioning the incarceration of Black Americans as authors investigate policy, laws, and the injustices which have become daily and unremarkable in the United States. Authors argue for a rational and fair examination of the penal system and direct pipeline which streams Black men into prison. Prepare yourself for research which uncovers an American travesty, a twenty-first century Middle Passage. -- Shirley R. Steinberg, The University of Calgary

The effectiveness of schools in fueling the carceral nation, and of prisons in necessitating educational apartheid, are neither accidental nor signs of failed systems. In Understanding, Dismantling, and Disrupting the Prison-to-School Pipeline, Fasching-Varner and colleagues shed light on the numerous and entrenched ways that the school-prison nexus is structured as such, and ways to find hope in its abolition. -- Kevin Kumashiro, University of San Francisco
