Reviews

"The must-read criminal justice book of 2018."--Chris Hayes
"An in-depth study of misdemeanor justice in New York City. . . . An important, first-of-its-kind book."--Kirkus Reviews
"While there has been much attention paid to the overt ways that our criminal-justice system has affected poor communities of color . . . less attention has been directed toward what happens in the middle, when people are funneled through a confusing, bureaucratic court system. Kohler-Hausmann . . . compellingly demonstrates, just as the police and prisons play a central role in broken-windows policing, so, too, do the courts."--Clio Chang, The Nation
"Finalist for the 2018 C. Wright Mills Award, Society for the Study of Social Problems"
"Winner of the 2019 Mirra Komarovsky Book Award, Eastern Sociological Society"
"Winner of the Herbert Jacob Book Prize, Law and Society Association"
"Winner of the Albert J. Reiss Distinguished Scholarly Publication Award, Crime, Law, and Deviance Section of the American Sociological Association"
