About this title


Speaking plainly and courageously about crime, punishment, and politics, this book demands to be read. --Rush Limbaugh, Political commentator, talk show host

From Publishers Weekly:

After 32 years as a federal drug official, Arpaio was elected sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona, an area as large as New Jersey. Confronted with a 10% budget cut and overcrowded jails, he houses prisoners in tents in the desert. Prohibitions are strict: no smoking, no coffee, no nudie magazines, no violent TV shows. There are educational opportunities, but only 30% of the inmates participate. Arpaio instituted chain gangs, composed of volunteers, to do clean-up work; he also organized a civilian corps to assist his department. The mass media have attacked Arpaio as a vestige of a bygone era, but his book, written with Sherman (The Good, Bad and the Famous), makes a strong case that he is a tough, not a cruel, cop.
