Against the Grain

U.C. Berkeley professor Loic Wacquant describes the rise of the punitive state, the real functions of prisons (their purpose is not, he argues, to fight crime), and the relationship between penal policy and welfare/workfare policy. He also assails the notion of a Prison Industrial Complex as disconnected from reality.
