According to the Justice Department's National Crime Survey, the crime rate in the United States is lower today than it was when Nixon was in the White House. In spite of this, political leaders demand nationwide prison construction as a response to the war on drugs and to accommodate the results of the new three strikes law. At the same time, the gap between rich and poor is wider than ever and the needs of the non-disruptive poor are being ignored by the economic and political elites to the point of unprecedented homelessness. The author predicts this widening gap will prompt the return of 1960s-style civil turmoil which will lead to the end of the war on drugs and the emptying of hundreds of thousands of cells so the protesting poor can be plausibly threatened with incarceration.

Book Description:

For twenty years the Left has been apologizing for the inadequacies of the Great Society poverty programs and watching passively as tax dollars once spent on alleviating the inequality were transfered to pay for a more massive system of prisons. This book is a wake-up call to the silent Left who have run from the dreaded term liberal for too long.

About the Author:

JOSEPH DILLON DAVEY is a lawyer, political scientist, and writer of numerous journal articles on public policy. He has taught law, political science, and criminal justice on the undergraduate and graduate level for the past 20 years.
