"Michael Singer has produced an essential primer on prison rape in the United States, exploring the empirical, legal, and socio-cultural dimensions of the phenomenon. He elegantly combines technical detail with the human element, moving seamlessly between the social science research that documents the magnitude of the problem and the heartbreaking stories of individual victims that underscore its urgency. In a country that prides itself on its commitment to justice, Singer suggests, the persistence of prison rape is an ongoing source of national shame. This accessible account is an invaluable resource for scholars, policy makers, and anyone interested in prison reform."
