by Reuben Jonathan Miller
Reuben Jonathan Miller just received a MacArthur “Genius Award” for his work tracing the long-term consequences that incarceration and re-entry have on the lives of individuals and their families. In his recent book, he shows how imprisonment of Black men and women is part of a “lineage of control” arising from slavery and the Jim Crow South. “A scarifying account of law gone awry. A powerful argument in favor of judicial reform—now.” ~ Kirkus Reviews
