book list for my Temple class, spring 2013.

During Spring semester, I’ll be teaching an upper-division writing seminar course for history majors, “Incarceration Nation: The History of Prisons in the United States.” I thought I’d post the book list here, should any students come looking for it. I encourage you to buy used books- any edition is fine. 

  • Michael Meranze, Laboratories of Virtue: Punishment, Revolution, and Authority in Philadelphia, 1760-1835 (Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, 1996).
  • Miroslava Chávez-García, States of Delinquency: Race and Science in the Making of California’s Juvenile Justice System (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2012).
  • Regina Kunzel, Criminal Intimacy: Prison and the Uneven History of Modern Sexuality (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2010).
  • Tom Wicker, A Time to Die: The Attica Prison Revolt (New York: Haymarket Books, 2011).
