City Lights will host the first Bay Area book party to celebrate the
long-awaited publication of Ruth Wilson Gilmore's Golden Gulag, a
radical geographer's account of the political economy of prisons in the neoliberalized state of California.

Tony Platt reviewed Golden Gulag in the SF Chronicle and called
Ruthie's book a "sophisticated, interdisciplinary study, brimming with new ideas, political savvy and moral urgency...If you want to
understand why progressive California leads the Western world with its regressive system of punishment, Gilmore's Golden Gulag is the first must-read book of the 21st century
