Product Description

Ethnographic Explorations of Punishment and the Governance of Security
edited by Robert Werth

This special issue highlights the growth of ethnographic examinations of penal governance across multiple disciplines, emphasizing the possibilities and the potential blind spots of ethnography as a methodology for studying penality. By analyzing phenomena as varied as pre-trial incarceration, parole and reentry, female incarceration, immigrant detention, and mental health courts, these articles help us explore commonalities and differences across penal practices, the diffusion of penality throughout society, and its entanglements with other sociocultural, political, and economic forces.
