"With this anthology, Oboler and her collaborators have taken a vicious swing at cracking the walls of silence, indifference, and distortion that surround the largest system of criminal injustice in the world. Simply put, with its wide array of individual case studies, and legal, social, and philosophical interventions on civil and human rights discourses, Behind Bars is the most comprehensive interdisciplinary work to date on the sordid reality of the carceral state s pervasive impact on U.S. Latinos. This a must-read for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding not only of how the prison industrial complex intersects with social control, nationhood, immigration policies, and international law and impacts the individual lives of those behind bars, but also of what the very existence of these policies and practices say about us in the so-called free world." - Louis Mendoza, Associate Professor of Chicano Studies, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
