by The CR10 Publications Collective. Over seven million people live under the control of US prison and parole systems. The vast majority of them are people of colour or youth. Between 2000 and 2007, Congress added 454 new offences to the criminal code. In comparison, Blair added 3000 new laws during his leadership. The UK prison population is similarly skewed in terms of race and class. For a decade, Critical Resistance has organised to abolish the reliance on imprisonment, policing and surveillance. Reflecting on key themes of Dismantle, Change and Build, this book celebrates their bold strategies and work.

“As new and more virulent articulations of imprisonment, policing, and surveillance have grown over the past decade, one thing remains clear: the prison industrial complex must be abolished. Critical Resistance is a leading voice in the movement for abolition and the pieces in this collection are powerful tools for both long-time activists and those brand new to the movement for abolition now!”—Angela Y. Davis, author of Are Prisons Obsolete?

The number of people in prison in the United States has risen 400 percent in the last twenty years—the world’s highest incarceration rate. Over seven million people currently live under the control of US jail, prison, probation, or parole systems—the vast majority of them people of color and young people. Policing at all levels is increasingly militarized and demands more and more resources.

For a decade, Critical Resistance has organized to abolish the reliance on imprisonment, policing, and surveillance, seeing the prison industrial complex (PIC) not as a broken system to be fixed, but a well-oiled machine that must be eliminated entirely.

Published in honor of Critical Resistance’s tenth anniversary, Abolition Now! reflects the organization’s themes: Dismantle, Change, and Build. It presents bold strategies to create a stronger movement of people committed to PIC abolition and building stronger, safer, healthier communities, not more elaborate forms of repression.

This is the best book on prison abolition ever. MUST READ. ????

greatest
I was frankly a tad disappointed with the book, only because they forgot a critical chapter - a chapter squarely discussing prison abolition. While certainly it’s critical to also discuss the many other issues raised in the book (including the intersections of immigration, racism & imperialism, it’s nevertheless always crucial to make the “reform v. Abolition” arguments front-and-center. While still a worthy read for criminal justice reform advocates, I think the book could have been stronger with this missing chapter.

Published to coincide with this year's 10th anniversary Critical Resistance conference in Oakland, "Abolition Now!" is an amazing anthology of analytical essays (and poetry!) by prison abolitionists working to create a world not only free of the prison industrial complex, but free as well of all the interconnected systems of oppression that reinforce it like capitalism, patriarchy, white supremacy, heterosexism, transphobia, militarism, colonialism, and imperialism. Importantly, the authors expose how the prison industrial complex is intimately related to other reactionary institutions like the non-profit and military industrial complexes. Activists concerned about state violence, racism, the feminization and criminalization of poverty, the globalization of the prison industry, and the on-going struggles of black, Latino/a, indigenous, Arab, Asian, working-class, immigrant, queer and transgender communities clearly need to read this urgent and informative book. Simply put, what we need is not another ugly prison, but universal healthcare, free education, decent housing, a just economy, and world peace!
