" Witness in the Era of Mass Incarceration" new book by Doran Larson, Wolcott-Bartlett Chair of Ethics and Christian Evidences

Witness in the Era of Mass Incarceration works from the premise that if the law establishes and maintains both its practical and symbolic authority on the basis of its monopoly on legally sanctioned violence and the suffering threatened and delivered by such violence, then we cannot know the full human cost or concrete moral status of any legal state without human witness to the depth and manner of suffering meted out by such violence.
