Punishment for Sale is the definitive modern history of private prisons, told through social, economic and political frames.

The book provides a balanced telling of the story of private prisons and the resistance they engendered within the context of criminology, and it is intended for supplemental use in undergraduate and graduate courses in criminology, social problems, and race & ethnicity.
