In Punishing Places, Jessica Simes demonstrates that our highest imprisonment rates are now in small cities, suburbs, and rural areas. This book presents novel measures for estimating the community-level effects of incarceration using spatial, quantitative, and qualitative methods. Punishing Places has broad and urgent implications for policy reforms aimed at ameliorating the community effects of mass incarceration and promoting alternatives to the carceral system. This is a virtual book launch and discussion.
