With 2.3 million people behind bars, the US has the largest prison population in the history of the world. Through dramatic first-hand accounts, expert testimony, and shocking statistics, ‘Incarcerating US’ asks fundamental questions about the prison system in America: What is the purpose of prison? Why did the US prison population explode in the 1970s? What can make the US justice system more just?
