Smart Decarceration: Achieving Criminal Justice Transformation in the 21st Century is a forward-thinking, practical volume that provides innovative concepts and concrete strategies for ending mass incarceration. This book features contributions from advocates, researchers, academics, practitioners, and persons with incarceration histories who are now leaders in the criminal justice reform movement. A chapter by The Sentencing Project’s research analyst, Nazgol Ghandnoosh, underscores the importance of reducing time served in prison for serious and violent crimes in order to achieve meaningful decarceration. In Minimizing the Maximum: The Case for Shortening All Prison Sentences, Nazgol draws on research to show how prolonged sentences produce diminishing returns for public safety while tying up resources that could be used for crime prevention, drug treatment, and reentry programs.
