Upper Bunkies Unite: And Other Thoughts On the Politics of Mass Incarceration by Andrea James

Upper Bunkies Unite and Other Thoughts on the Politics of Mass Incarceration by Andrea James

In Upper Bunkies Unite, Andrea James takes a critical look at the politics and policies resulting in mass incarceration within the United States. From her professional experience as a former criminal defense lawyer, and her personal experience as a formerly incarcerated woman, James provides a more accurate portrait of who is in our prisons and the destructive outcome of politics that support a failed drug war and exhaust resources on law enforcement and incarceration. James demonstrates the need for a shift toward community wellness initiatives to replace incarceration and a complete overhaul of the current U.S. criminal justice framework from one of punishment and wasted human potential, to a system focused on social justice and healing.
