With her characteristic brilliance, grace and radical audacity, Angela Y. Davis has put the case for the latest abolition movement in American life: the abolition of the prison. As she quite correctly notes, American life is replete with abolition movements, and when they were engaged in these struggles, their chances of success seemed almost unthinkable. For generations of Americans, the abolition of slavery was sheerest illusion. Similarly,the entrenched system of racial segregation seemed to last forever, and generations lived in the midst of the practice, with few predicting its passage from custom. The brutal, exploitative (dare one say lucrative?) convict-lease system that succeeded formal slavery reaped millions to southern jurisdictions (and untold miseries for tens of thousands of men, and women). Few predicted its passing from the American penal landscape. Davis expertly argues how social movements transformed these social, political and cultural institutions, and made such practices untenable. In Are Prisons Obsolete?, Professor Davis seeks to illustrate that the time for the prison is approaching an end. She argues forthrightly for "decarceration", and argues for the transformation of the society as a whole.… (mais)

I read a few chapters of this in college, but decided to take my time and read through the entire book. I read and reread because abolition is something I think we could see in my lifetime. This book is a must read if you are thinking about the concepts of "crime" and "justice". ( )

gives an overview of the development of the prison industrial complex in the US and calls for people to envision a post-prison future ( )

Despite being 17 years old, still a very good introduction to the concept of prision abolition that makes me want to read more. ( )
  laze | Dec 4, 2020 |
Just an incredible, succinct and deeply powerful read that lays out how prison cannot be reformed, and how it has in fact only increased incredibly in the last 30-40 years. Davis manages to weave history, her personal experiences with the prison system, and gendered analysis of prison into a tight and deeply compelling argument that we must replace the prison system with other forms of justice that do not involve disappearing the poor and racialized. Definitely accessible and a critical read I'd recommend to anyone who has not yet encountered it before--and even if you have, I'd recommend reading it again. I know I will. ( )

In this brilliant, thoroughly researched book, Angela Davis swings a wrecking ball into the racist and sexist underpinnings of the American prison system. Her arguments are well wrought and restrained, leveling an unflinching critique of how and why more than 2 million Americans are presently behind bars, and the corporations who profit from their suffering.
