In this, the first comprehensive assessment of incapacitation, Professors Zimring and Hawkins show the increasing reliance of restraint to justify imprisonment, analyse the existing theoretical literature on incapacitation effects, review the existing empirical research on the topic, report a new study, and explore in detail the links between what is known about incapacitation and the proper construction of criminal justice policy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A tremendous contribution to criminology, criminal justice policy, and sentencing jurisprudence...by far the most comprehensive and trenchant analysis of incapacitation yet written. This book does for incapacitation what Zimring and Hawkins' first book did for deterrence."--James B. Jacobs,
Director, Center for Research in Crime & Justice, New York University School of Law
"Anyone who wants to get beyond the simplistic rhetoric of the current 'three strikes and you're out' debate, and take a serious look at what has been happening to state sentencing policies, should read this book."--Peter Greenwood, RAND
