Reviews

"An important and timely book, Jailcare lays bare how we have neglected the social safety net and distorted the ways in which we care for our most vulnerable and marginalized citizens by enacting policies that devalue the lives of women and their children."--Journal of Children and Poverty
"Insightful and convincing."--Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
"A sobering critique of the new administration's social, judicial, and economic policies and its potential effects on mass incarceration."--Somatosphere
