Baz Dreisinger, a professor, a journalist, and the founder of the Prison-to-College Pipeline, looks into the human stories of incarcerated men and women and those who imprison them, creating a jarring, poignant view of a world to which most are denied access. From serving as a restorative justice facilitator in a notorious South African prison and working with genocide survivors in Rwanda to launching a creative writing class in an overcrowded Ugandan prison and coordinating a drama workshop for women prisoners in Thailand, Dreisinger examines the world behind bars with equal parts empathy and intellect. She journeys to Jamaica to visit a prison music program, to Singapore to learn about approaches to prisoner reentry, to Australia to grapple with the bottom line of private prisons, to a federal supermax in Brazil to confront the horrors of solitary confinement, and finally to the so-called model prisons of Norway. Incarceration Nations concludes with climactic lessons about the past, present, and future of justice.

Best Look at Global Prisons—Remarkable!
Professor Baz has created something truly remarkable with this audiobook contribution. if you are interested in criminal justice reform, this is the deepest breadth I have read in real system reform. It is made strong by its global look and kept engaging by it’s wonderful storytelling and fabulous narration. Because I work in the field of criminal justice reform, I can full heartedly say this book has changed my work forever and for the best. My kudos to Professor Baz for this excellent contribution.

The imagery that this writings procure left me feeling as if I personally experienced the hardships. The writer does well to capture the readers attention. However the end was a bit anticlimactic. Definitely recommend persons have a read.
