9780195384055: The Toughest Beat: Politics, Punishment, and the Prison Officers Union in California (Studies in Crime and Public Policy)

In America today, one in every hundred adults is behind bars. As our prison population has exploded, 'law and order' interest groups have also grown -- in numbers and political clout. In The Toughest Beat, Joshua Page argues in crisp, vivid prose that the Golden State's prison boom fueled the rise of one of the most politically potent and feared interest groups in the nation: the California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA). As it made great strides for its members, the prison officers' union also fundamentally altered the composition and orientation of the penal field. The Toughest Beat is essential reading for anyone concerned with contemporary crime and punishment, interest group politics, and public sector labor unions.

About the Author:


Joshua Page was born and raised in Southern California. He received his bachelor's degree from the University of California-Santa Barbara and master's and doctorate degrees from the University of California-Berkeley. Page is currently a professor of sociology at the University of Minnesota. He lives in Minneapolis with his wife Letta Wren and two dogs.

Review:


"Page is even-handed in his analysis...The Toughest Beat makes for fascinating reading." --Sacramento News and Review


"By linking the penal field to politics, The Toughest Beat joins an emerging literature on the politics of punishing...Page advances this literature by developing a mechanism to trace the interaction of effects of key relationships on penal outcomes. It will certainly influence the direction of future research as scholars try to apply this concept to other times and spaces." --The American Journal of Sociology


"It is refreshing to read an account of prison life and policy that so effectively combines political analysis with sociological research. The Toughest Beat is original, influential and makes a significant contribution to penology, political economy/sociology, criminology and social science more broadly." --Contemporary Sociology

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In America today, one in every hundred adults is behind bars. As our prison population has exploded, law and order interest groups have also grown-in numbers and political clout. Committed to punitive justice, these organizations perpetuate America s imprisonment binge. The Toughest Beat forcefully demonstrates how this cyclical process has unfolded in California. In crisp, vivid prose, Joshua Page argues that the Golden State s prison boom fueled the rise of one of the most politically potent and feared interest groups in the nation: the California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA). As it made great strides for its members, the prison officers union also fundamentally altered the composition and orientation of the penal field. It promoted extreme punishment and moralistic conceptions of prisoners, helped institute ultra-tough penal policies such as Three Strikes and You re Out, obstructed efforts to privatize prisons, and empowered sympathetic political figures and groups, including crime victims organizations that it helped create.To understand the nature, purpose, and scope of California s penal system, Page explains, we cannot neglect the story of this group so often known simply as the powerful prison guards union. Page draws on years of intensive research, using the lessons of the CCPOA to illuminate concrete processes that determine criminal justice outcomes at the state level. He demonstrates how actors produce and reinforce the penal status quo and considers whether, by making these mechanisms clear, we might open the door to real and lasting change in the penal field and beyond. The Toughest Beat is essential reading for anyone concerned with contemporary crime and punishment, interest group politics, and public sector labor unions.
