Race and Masculinity in Contemporary American Prison Novels Summary

Race and Masculinity in Contemporary American Prison Novels by Auli Ek

This book offers an interdisciplinary analysis of how contemporary American prison narratives reflect and produce ideologies of masculinity in the United States, and in so doing, compellingly engages popular culture in order to demonstrate the profound ways in which implicit understandings of prison life shape all Americans, and their reactions to people both incarcerated and not.
