Something like an introduction -- I: Debt. Confessions ; Guilt ; Sinnerman -- II: Wage. Millions of details ; In victory and spectacular defeat ; Chains and corpses -- III: Salvation. Treatment ; Power ; America, goddamn!
A Chicago Cook County Jail chaplain and mass-incarceration sociologist examines the lifelong realities of a criminal record, demonstrating how America's justice system is less about rehabilitation and more about structured disenfranchisement.
