Called a 'towering achievement' by Ira Glasser and 'the clearest and most intelligible case for a re-evaluation of how we view incarceration' by Spectrum Culture, A Plague of Prisons takes the same tools of public health that have tracked flu and AIDS epidemics to make the case that America's level of imprisonment has become an epidemic. Drucker passionately argues that imprisonment has become 'mass incarceration': a destabilising force, a plague upon the body politic, that undermines the communities it targets, damaging the very social structures that prevent crime.
