A great introduction to prison abolition that is not too dense while still not oversimplifying the topics presented. I absolutely would recommend this as a starting point for anyone interested in prison abolition.

Informative overview of the issues with the prison industrial complex in language that can be easily understood by lay people. Davis does a good job of providing the history behind how prisons today came to be and their role in continuing to oppress certain communities of people. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about why people are moving towards abolition and community-centered processes to repair harm.

Very informative, it really made me rethink the way our entire justice system is set up. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about prison abolition, or just the US prison system in general.
