PLN's second book, Prison Nation: The Warehousing of America's Poor is being well received by readers. We hope it too will also be made available in other countries. Prison Nation is the first book I am aware of that examines the correlation between mass imprisonment and the provision of counsel for indigent defendants. It also contains many articles about the prison industrial complex, activism on prison issues and much more. Many of these segments never appeared in PLN or any other publication. Prison Nation is also available from PLN.
I would like to thank everyone who donated to PLN's recent fundraiser. PLN relies largely on individual donations above and beyond its subscription costs to continue publishing. It is only through individual donations that PLN is able to continue its work. With the recent economic downturn, funding is tight for all non profits, but especially so for PLN which is largely cut off from traditional foundation funders who think that human rights violations don't occur in the United States. If you have not yet made a donation, it is not too late to do so, and all donations help.
