This clearly written book exposes the underlying errors of a failing system while suggesting new ways to approach such a monumental problem as the increasing violence in America. It urges us to rethink incarceration policy, especially as it intersects with race, social class, gender, morality, technology, the media, profiteering and legislated messages of prejudice, fear and violence.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Building Violence is a thought provoking record of America's rapid incarceration in the decades of the 80's and 90's. It tells the story, through distinguished justice authorities, that incarceration alone does not work. Violence breeds violence, even in prisons. Every student of criminal justice needs to read this book of essays."

-- James A. Gondles, Jr.
