    That accelerated in the late 20th century by the 60s and 70s, I don't know what de-incarceration you're thinking about, but if you look at the graph, incarceration, it's always going up, if you look at the long history of America, but in the 60s and 70s, it spikes. It's been spiking ever since then. This flurry of activity was followed by a period of serial re-creation in the 20th century in the form of the big-house prison, the correctional institution, and the warehouse prison, including its subtype: the supermaximum-security prison. In this recent period, American prisons have once again become models copied by other countries.

      The incarceration rate, which includes offenders in state and federal prisons and local jails, fell 13 percent from to , a level not seen since However, it is still more than three times higher than it was for most of the 20th century.   The United States has the highest rate of incarceration of any nation on Earth: We represent 4 percent of the planet’s population but 22 percent of its imprisoned.

In the previous five decades, from the s through the mids, the scale of punishment in America had been stable at around perThough the incarceration rate is now nearly eight times its historic average, the scale of punishment today gains its social force from its unequal distribution.

Mass Incarceration’s Slow Decline. Recently however, there has been some incremental progress in reducing mass incarceration. In the last decade, prison populations have declined by about 10 percent.

Latzer’s book is at its best — and most revealing — when it’s focused simply on the history of crime in America and, particularly, how it rose and fell through the latter half of the 20th.

Women prisons arose in the 19th century. Before that, like the case of the United Kingdom, there existed mixed prisons to cater for the small number of female inmates. The first women’s prison was constructed in and by the end of the first quarter of the 20th century; there were over 20 women prisons in the United States (Weiss & South 46).

In the 18th century it was the transatlantic slave trade, in the 19th century it was slavery, in the 20th century it was Jim Crow. Today it is mass incarceration. Alexander's book offers a timely and original framework for understanding mass incarceration, its roots to Jim Crow, our modern caste system, and what must be done to eliminate it.
