    This review is a WIP I have a lot of thoughts about this book that I m going to work on organizing whenever possible I was very torn on what rating to give this book and how I should review it On the one hand, the book offered a lot of insights that I had never previously considered and also gave me a lot of empirical data to digest This book definitely convinced me that prisons aren t an effective means of managing conflict or reconciling harm committed against people Further, the most vulnerable and marginalized people in our society also tend to be those most deeply affected by prisons.With that in mind, I had several issues with the book The first two are trifles compared to the others.1 Many of these essays did not name their sources Without knowing what sources were used, I cannot verify the veracity of the claims that were made, and I cannot make a decision whether or not to trust those claims based on the credibility not credentials, necessarily of the source of these claims 2 This book is poorly edited There were multiple grammatical and spelling er...

    This is a really quick read, since it s a series of essays mostly blog posts I would have preferred analysis, but this is a great introduction to prison abolition through a queer lens specifically critiquing prison expansion and hate crime legislation.Planning to read Captive Genders soon flippe...

    Vital critiques of the prison industrial complex and hate crime laws written by fierce people.

    Again, so great And yet again, Yasmin Nair nails it, adding nuance and intrigue.

  9. says:

    A terrific queering of the prison abolition movement A must read for anyone doing work around race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity or ability.
