Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“An eye-opening and compelling critique of the American criminal justice system.”—Marc Schuster, author of The Grievers

“Ivan Goldman takes the academic literature and does it one better. He not only explains the roots and results of America’s overincarceration problem in an understandable way, but he also puts a human face on the issue by telling the story through the lived experiences of real people unlucky enough to have witnessed the workings of the criminal justice system firsthand.”—Neill Franklin, executive director, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, and thirty-four-year veteran of Baltimore-area policing

Sick Justice should be required reading in every law school and police academy in
America. This is an important book.”—Neal Griffin, author and veteran San Diego County, California, police lieutenant

“With deep reporting and crisp analysis, Ivan Goldman has written an important expose of a dysfunctional system that is a disgrace to the ideals America claims to cherish.”—Michael Satchell, former senior editor, U.S. News & World Report

"Succinct . . . damning . . . compelling."—Karl Wolff, CCLaP
