Prof. Jeffreys publishes new book

UW-Green Bay Prof. Derek Jeffreys’ (Humanities, Religion) new book on jails and human dignity — America’s Jails: The Search for Human Dignity in an Age of Mass Incarceration, NYU Press — is released this week (May 3, 2018). Originating while Jeffreys taught in prisons and jails, this book explores the current crisis in our jail system, and considers philosophical questions about the meaning of human dignity. It also outlines ways to respond to problems in our jails and asks difficult questions about the future of the jail in American society. Find it, here.
