|Gates of Injustice is a compelling exposé of the U.S. prison
system: it tells how more than 2 million Americans came to be incarcerated
... what it's really like on the inside ... and how a giant "prison-industrial
complex" promotes imprisonment over other solutions.
Alan Elsner paints a terrifying picture of how our prisons really work. You'll hear how race-based gangs control institutions and prey on the weak and how a rape epidemic has swept the U.S. prison system. You'll discover the plight of 300,000 mentally ill prisoners, some abandoned to suffer with grossly inadequate medical care.
Elsner takes you inside "supermax" prisons that deny inmates human contact
and reveals official corruption and brutality within U.S. jails. You'll
also learn how prisons help to spread infectious diseases throughout society
... one of the ways the prison crisis touches you, even if you've never
had a brush with the law.
