What People are Saying About This

Joan Petersilia

“Gail A. Caputo gives us the revealing and deeply troubling account of the failure of reentry programs to serve the unique needs of women offenders. In the best ethnographic study I have ever read, she adds a new dimension to the debate about gender-specific programs, and illustrates how even well-intentioned reintegration programs remained fundamentally flawed when embedded in a punitive justice system. . . Anyone concerned about mass incarceration, the effectiveness of reentry programs, and crime policy should consider this a must-read.”
