“An incredibly rich resource for anyone interested in the history of policing, confinement, and resistance. . . . Chase has intricately woven innovative research from top scholars in the field of carcerality. . . . This collection of articles is a phenomenal contribution to the field of the carceral state.”--Journal of American Ethnic History
“This collection of essays masterfully organizes important contributions to the scholarship on the carceral state. . . . Authors expand each other’s arguments, creating well-connected theses analyzing the foundations and interconnections of carceral networks in the United States. . . . Readers interested in the intersections between racism, incarceration, immigration detention and deportation, and settler-colonial violence will find what they are looking for within this well-crafted anthology.”--International Criminal Justice Review
"This cutting-edge and extremely compelling interdisciplinary volume provides a sociohistorical overview of the development and execution of racialized punitive practices and the making of the carceral state."--Victor Rios, University of California, Santa Barbara
"Caging Borders and Carceral States is a significant addition to current debates on the carceral crisis in the United States. Making use of a variety of disciplinary lenses, the book’s contributions assemble a powerful 'history of the present' of imprisonment, detention, and immigration control and reckon with the deep historical roots of American mass incarceration."--Alessandro De Giorgi, San José State University
