Incarceration's Front Door: The Misuse of Jails in America

This encyclopedic examination of jail use explores many important questions related to jail use: who is in jail? What are they myriad of paths that lead them there? What implications does spending time in jail have on individuals, families, and communities? Incarceration’s Front Door reviews the research and interrogates the data from a wide range of sources to open a window on the widespread misuse of jails in America. It also draws on Vera’s long experience in the field and examples from jurisdictions of different sizes and compositions to suggest how the negative consequences of this misuse can be mitigated.
