Conservatives and Criminal Justice Reform

Steven Teles wrote a wonderful book eight years ago about the conservative legal movement. This month he has published another book (with co-author David Dagan) about why many conservatives changed their mind about criminal justice issues.  For those interested in conservative legal and political thought, political and legal change, and/or criminal justice issues--or for those just looking for a great book to read--I highly commend this book.

Increased incarceration, hiring more police, and adopting more proactive and aggressive police strategies have significantly contributed to the massive crime drop of the last generation. Going back to the policies of the Sixties and Seventies will produce the results of the Sixties and Seventies. And inmates can receive God's redemption whether their sentence is ten years or eight years.

Looking forward to this. My sense is that Chuck Colson and his prison ministry are important parts of the story.
