This well-researched and powerfully written book does shed light on the lack of effectiveness and humanity of our Texas corrections facilities. Little is done to correct or rehabilitate while much is done to humiliate and to devalue a growing prison population. Betty Gilmore and Nanon Williams bring clear voices to this conversation. They are voices you need to hear.
