Reading List

The blocks below represent readings assigned in each week of the course. We read two books over the course of the semester (American Prison and Narconomics), so the chapters don't always correspond to the material covered that week in class. The extra reading tends to be more closely tied with class material or serves as a preview for the upcoming lesson.

Students in the class are given PDFs of the reading posted in the course management system. Below, Amazon links to the book are included.
