Book Reviews.

Baz Dreisinger, Ph.D

Author, Incarceration Nations (2016)

“This indispensable work is powerful yet concise, informed by years of experience grappling with the brokenness produced by our criminal justice system’s commitment to mass incarceration. It is evidence that love and healing can triumph over hate and harm, if one has the commitment to put in the work.”

Glenn E. Martin

Founder and President, JustLeadershipUSA

“Young’s work is a testament to both the healing power and deep reservoir of wisdom those who endure the worst of our country’s criminal justice system have to offer. The frustrating wonder of this guide – forged from devastation widely understood as needless and counterproductive – is that its unquestioned value is only matched by the absurd reality that it had to written at all.”
