This volume published by the Aspen Institute's Roundtable on Community Change includes essays from a number of scholars addressing two core themes: (1) changing public perceptions of race, crime, and punishment; and (2) alternative visions of justice and strategic opportunities and challenges for reformers to realize them. The volume is organized around those two themes in an attempt to shed further light on the connections among race, crime, and punishment and to articulate an alternative vision for criminal justice reform-a vision that connects criminal justice to trends and movements in sectors that aim to improve social, economic, and political opportunities for everyone.
