American Furies: Crime, Punishment, and Vengeance in the Age of Mass Imprisonment
Sasha Abramsky
- Thursday, May 31
- 7:30 PM

Sasha Abramsky is a journalist whose work has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, New York Magazine, The Village Voice, and Rolling Stone. In 2000 he was awarded a Soros Society, Crime and Communities Media Fellowship. In this disturbing yet elegant expose of US Penitentiaries and their surrounding communities, Abramsky draws on years of research to show the ways in which American prisons have shifted away from initial goals of rehabilitation towards longer, more severe sentences with increasing violence and cruelty towards prisoners.
