PUNISHMENT WITHOUT CRIME How Our Massive Misdemeanor System Traps the Innocent and Makes America More Unequal

by | Read by Janina Edwards

Contemporary Culture • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Janina Edwards captures the frustration and challenges of the many victims introduced in Natapoff's exploration of the American criminal justice system. As Edwards's emotive narration evokes their sympathy, listeners are encouraged to see the inequality the author illuminates. She uncovers deep cracks in the criminal justice system in the ways that it strong-arms individuals into taking guilty pleas or unfairly pits the state against the individual in ways that have long-lasting ramifications. The result is a system that helps to perpetuate crime, inequality, and profiteering. While Natapoff has constructed a compelling argument with numerous voices, Edwards give those voices meaning that may linger with listeners long after the audiobook is finished.
