dc.description.abstractThe New Abolitionists presents a collection of essays and interviews that provide a frank look at the nature and purposes of prisons in the United States from the perspective of the prisoners. Written by Native American, African American, Latino, Asian, and European American prisoners, the book examines captivity and democracy, the racial "other", gender and violence, and the stigma of suspect humanity. Contributors to the volume include Mumia Abu-Jamal, Pancho Aguila, Charles Baxter, Alan Berkman, Philip Berrigan, Wayne Brown, Marilyn Buck, Holley Cantine, Tony Chatman-Bey, Angela Y.
