Beyond Prisons: Introducing the Summer 2011 Issue

Video: 2.3 million people behind bars. How to stop wasting lives and money.

The United States locks up more people than any other country, but that hasn't made us safer. The drug war jails thousands of nonviolent addicts. Taxpayers and poor communities lose as states slash social programs to pay for prisons. There's a better way—compassion, not punishment; restoration, not isolation. It's less costly, more humane—and it works.

Check out the Summer 2011 issue now.

Featuring work by Michelle Alexander, Wendell Berry, the Yes Men, Gabor Maté, Patrice Gaines, Sarah van Gelder, Norm Stamper, Jen Marlowe, and more.
