Criminal Justice Review

“In Mass Incarceration Nation: How the United States Became Addicted to Prisons and Jails and How It Can Recover, Jeffrey Bellin provides readers with a wide-ranging analysis of the causes of mass incarceration and the rippling effects it has on individuals, their families, and society at large. Uniquely positioned as a former prosecutor turned law professor, Bellin draws on anecdotes as a criminal justice insider, while relying on historical archives and official government data to corroborate his arguments…. Mass Incarceration Nation is a highly informative and balanced book, offering a wide-ranging scope on the causes of mass incarceration and proposing practical solutions to reduce the prison population…. this book is an essential read for several audiences, including educators, policymakers, and novice readers – one that is unfamiliar with the phenomenon – because it strategically combines scholarly rigor with anecdotes and modern examples.” — Professor Graciela Perez, Criminal Justice Review 1-2 (2023)
