Review quote

-This compilation of empirical works and comprehensive literature reviews addresses the areas of incarceration and the African American family. The text also lays bare the relationship between America's 'war on drugs' policies and 'the race to incarcerate' African Americans. . . . Social scientists, social workers, and other professionals will find this text a useful reference tool for designing studies, programs, and policies.- --Ebonie Cunningham, Contemporary Sociologyshow more
