Race to Incarcerate: The Sentencing Project

Race to Incarcerate: The Sentencing Project - Marc Mauer I read the original version, so much of the data is outdated, but it's safe to say the issues Mauer addresses have only worsened. This book is a great resource for a broad range of statistics. It's fairly short, but the strong research is combined with succinct descriptions and analyses of the political, social, and racial factors contributing to the enormous increase in the US prison population, and he offers a few more suggestions than most books on the subject do.
