Reviews

Chaney and Schwarz have produced a book that is critically important for educators and those interested in helping re-build lives and communities of the formerly incarcerated. Race, Education, and Reintegrating Formerly Incarcerated Citizens has so many virtues to recommend it. Not only does it provide a critical analysis of the challenges facing the formerly incarcerated, but it also provides workable strategies for dealing with these challenges. The contributors speak authoritatively-either having experienced incarceration or worked with those who have. A whole section of the book is devoted to giving voice to the previously incarcerated and serves to humanize the adult learners in education programs. There is much to learn and benefit from in reading this book. I highly recommend for educators and those committed to social justice alike. -- Talmadge C. Guy, University of Georgia, Emeritus Chaney and Schwartz have assembled a must-read primer on Black males and the prison system. The collection of writings expose the reader to the depth and breadth of this complex social phenomenon... Read this book-and be prepared to have your assumptions challenged! -- Dionne Rosser-Mims, Troy University Reentry can be a very ambiguous term in the landscape of criminal justice reform. There has not been a consensus of what reentry means or its application in society. The only thing that can be agreed is a serious need for reentry services, but what that is or its implementation is anyone's guess. But reading Race, Education, and Reintegrating Formerly Incarcerated Citizens: Counterstories and Counterspaces, edited by John R. Chaney and Joni Schwartz, has provided a way forward to begin to think anew about reentry and how to best serve the ever growing ranks of the formerly incarcerated. Years from now we will look at this book as the starting point of a collective effort to define reentry in the years to come. -- Kingsley A. Rowe, New York University
