Ruth Wilson Gilmore – Beyond the Prison Industrial Complex

I had the pleasure  of hearing Ruth Wilson Gilmore speak this Monday at the University of Illinois – Chicago. Her talk, Beyond the Prison Industrial Complex: The World We Want is the World We Need (MP3 link), is well worth checking out. Her book, Golden Gulag: Prisons, Surplus, Crisis, and Opposition in Globalizing California, which came out shortly after I got out of prison and am just getting into it now, is also an important read for anyone concerned about and struggling against the historically unparalleled injustice of the system of mass incarceration in the USA.
