MEDIA REVIEWS
"Sloop's "The Cultural Prison" is a stunning analysis of the roles that race and gender play in the ways in which discipline and punishment are understood in contemporary American culture, as well as the implications such representations have for a wide range of public policy considerations. Moreover, the book is one of the first clear and compelling examples of the possibilities of a critical rhetoric that bridges the tension between the deconstructive impulse of poststructuralist cultural studies and the reconstructive impetus of rhetorical studies."—John Louis Lucaites, Indiana University
"A fascinating study of the prisoner in America's cultural imagination."—Maurice Charland, Concordia University
