The Case for Penal Abortion free pdf This book marshals convincing arguments from a number of scholars and activists for abolishing not only imprisonment, but overhauling our entire penal injustice system. The movement for penal abolition is as old as prisons themselves, which from their beginning have failed to achieve any of their stated objects - individual and general deterrence, rehabilitation, and restoring a sense of justice. Given the failure of penalty in addressing individual (street) crime, abolitionists have traditionally opposed increased control. Should they now consider increased control for these new kinds of criminality?
