Book Talk | Halfway Home: Race, Punishment, and the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration  (Special Events)

Dr. Reuben Jonathan Miller (Author and Sociologist, University of Chicago) In conversation with Dr. Jennifer Cobbina (Host, MSU School of Criminal Justice).

Halfway Home by Reuben Jonathan Miller shows that the American justice system was not created to rehabilitate. Parole is structured to keep classes of Americans impoverished, unstable, and disenfranchised long after they've paid their debt to society.

Informed by Miller's experience as the son and brother of incarcerated men, Halfway Home captures the stories of the men, women, and communities fighting against a system that is designed for them to fail.

It is a poignant and eye-opening call to arms that reveals how laws, rules, and regulations extract a tangible cost not only from those working to rebuild their lives, but also our democracy. As Miller searchingly explores, America must acknowledge and value the lives of its formerly imprisoned citizens.
