The Epidemiology of Mass Incarceration

Monday, December 05, 2011

Public health scholar and Soros Justice Fellow Ernest Drucker argues that imprisonment has become an epidemic in this country, a destabilizing force that undermines families and communities, damaging the very social structures that prevent crime. Drucker spent 20 years treating drug addiction and another 20 studying AIDS in some of the poorest neighborhoods of the South Bronx and the world, and he uses the public health and epidemiological concepts in his book A Plague of Prisons: The Epidemiology of Mass Incarceration in America.
