Abstract

In 'Mobilized by Injustice', Hannah L. Walker excavates the power of criminal justice to inspire political action. Mobilization results from the belief that one's experiences are a consequence of policies that target people like one's self on the basis of group affiliation like race, ethnicity and class. Walker offers a compelling account of the criminal justice system as a spark for the formation of a movement with the potential to remake American politics.
