Shackled & Chained: Mass Incarceration in Capitalist America


Originally posted on Social Action:

This episode we were joined by activist and author, Eugene Puryear, to discuss his new book, “Shackled and Chained: Mass Incarceration in Capitalist America”. This book is a thorough examination of mass incarceration, its causes and consequences. Eugene Puryear examines the evolution of mass incarceration as a product of U.S. monopoly capitalism as well as bipartisan political allegiance to the system’s needs. In addition to detailing its historical origins, Puryear provides a detailed examination of the oppressive reality that reigns inside America’s prison system. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the “how” and “why” of mass incarceration as well as for those seeking a factual account of what it is truly like “inside.”
