- "This richly-referenced book is both scholarly and engaging. Bringing a family focus to issues of incarceration, it combines a sound conceptual foundation and extensive literature review with vignettes and observations of real people who broke the law and are locked up for years. We get to see the impact that our nation’s correctional policies have on incarcerated mothers and fathers as well as on the children, spouses, and extended family who are left back home. Comprehensive and insightful, this book will become a standard reference for scholars, policy-makers, and anyone concerned about what incarceration does to families and to our society."
—Barbara J. Myers, Virginia Commonwealth University
- "Skillfully weaves the perspectives of a scientist and clinician with the experiences of incarcerated parents to shed light on child and family outcomes related to one of the largest uncontrolled social experiments in our history."
—J. Mark Eddy, School of Social Work, University of Washington
