Penal Abolition, the Practical Choice: A Practical Manual on Penal Abolition
Canadian Scholars' Press, 1995 - Corrections - 127 pages
"Penal Abolition is a refreshing antidote to the overwhelming emphasis that criminology has placed on sustaining prisons. As a country, Canada has to face the fact that it has the second highest rate of imprisonment of Western nations. This book is a much needed call to action to restructuring through the closing down of some of our unnecessary carceral institutions."
