forthcoming chapter on death penalty “abolition” and LWOP

I recently received word that Death and Other Penalties, edited by Geoffrey Adelsberg, Lisa Guenther, and Scott Zeman, is now under contract with Fordham University Press. I am honored to have a chapter included in the volume called, “Death Penalty Abolition in Neoliberal Times,” which critically takes up the failure of Prop. 34 in California, LWOP sentencing, and Foucault’s writings on the death penalty.
