About the Book

Mele and Miller offer a timely, insightful analysis of the continuing challenges faced by ex-felons upon re-entry into society. Such penalties include a lifetime ban on receiving welfare and food stamps for individuals convicted of drug felonies as well as barriers to employment, child rearing, and housing opportunities. This much-needed work contains pieces by scholars in law, criminology, and sociology, including: Scott Christianson, Michael Lichter, and Daniel Kanstroom.

Reviews

"This is a book which challenges and disturbs. It demands to be read by those who place faith in increasingly punitive strategies, and those who seek to resist them." - Dave Cowan, Professor of Law and Policy, University of Bristol
