In Prison Profiteers, co-editors Tara Herivel and Paul Wright "follow the money to an astonishing constellation of prison administrators and politicians working in collusion with private parties to maximize profits" (Publishers Weekly). From investment banks, guard unions, and the makers of Taser stun guns to health care providers, telephone companies, and the U.S. military (which relies heavily on prison labor), this network of perversely motivated interests has turned the imprisonment of one out of every 135 Americans into a lucrative business.

Called "an essential read for anyone who wants to understand what’s gone wrong with criminal justice in the United States" by ACLU National Prison Project director Elizabeth Alexander, this incisive and deftly researched volume shows how billions of tax dollars designated for the public good end up lining the pockets of those private enterprises dedicated to keeping prisons packed.

"An important analysis of a troubling social trend" (Booklist) that is sure to inform and outrage any concerned citizen, Prison Profiteers reframes the conversation by exposing those who stand to profit from the imprisonment of millions of Americans.

List price: $18.95
Author: Wesley Harris

True story of the exploits of one of the U.S. Marshals' greatest "unknown" deputies. John Tom Sisemore enforced the law with "neither fear nor favor" in the Western District of Louisiana in the 1890's. One newspaper in 1896 reported, "John T. Sisemore has the reputation of being one of the best and most efficient officers in the service of the government; in fact his superiors say there is no better, braver, or more zealous deputy in the United States." The author uses court documents, old newspapers, and interviews of Sisemore's descendants to paint a compelling history of life--and death--at the turn of the century.

The Briar Patch

The Briar Patch Lowest new price: $114.84
Lowest used price: $15.16
List price: $14.95
Author: Murray Kempton

On April 2, 1969 five-man squads of New York policemen, armed with shotguns and wearing bulletproof vests, pounded on a succession of apartment doors throughout New York City, rounding up members of the Black Panther party. Thirteen of twenty-one suspects were charged and tried for attempted arson, attempted murder, and conspiracies to blow up various police stations, school buildings, a railroad yard, and the Bronx Botanical Gardens. But the forces of "law and order" behaved in a decidedly less lawful manner than the defendants. The Briar Patch brilliantly examines the proceedings, from the police undercover operations that first implicated the Panthers, to their acquittal on all charges. It remains a seminal book - not just about the Panther 21, but about the quality of justice in America.

Originally published nearly 25 years ago, The Briar Patch is the account of the arrest of 18 members of the Black Panther Party in April 1969 and the subsequent trial of 13 of them. (Indictments were originally returned against 21 Panthers--hence the subtitle of the book--but not all went to court.) The Panthers were charged with conspiracy to kill several police officers and to destroy a number of buildings, including four police stations, five department stores, and the Bronx Botanical Gardens. All were held on $100,000 bail, even though several white radicals arrested later for bombings that had actually been committed were released on far less bail. The march through the justice system took about two years, but all of the defendants were finally acquitted. In prose both wry and magisterial, Murray Kempton, a columnist for Newsday before his death, shows the fallacies (and racism) inherent in the government's case. One sample: much of the case was based on the testimony of an informer who had been diagnosed by several psychiatrists as a pathological liar and a paranoid schizophrenic.

List price: $170.00
Author: Keith Inman
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Expanding on ideas proposed by leading thinkers throughout the history of forensic science, Principles and Practice of Criminalistics: The Profession of Forensic Science outlines a logical framework for the examination of physical evidence in a criminalistics laboratory. The book reexamines prevailing criminalistics concepts in light of both technical and intellectual advances and provides a way of conceptualizing physical evidence from its origin through its interpretation. Conceptually, the book explains what forensic scientists do and discusses the philosophical and practical considerations that affect the conduct of their work. To be sure, some of the ideas challenge conventional wisdom on the subject, and as such, are bound to provoke discussion among members of the forensic community. Against this background, Principles and Practice of Criminalistics: The Profession of Forensic Science is a tremendously valuable reference for professionals involved in forensic science and other related fields.
