Redistributing the Poor

Jails, Hospitals, and the Crisis of Law and Fiscal Austerity

Armando Lara-Millán

  • Offers a new alternative to the current and widely-accepted explanations for the rise of medicine in jails and its decline in public hospitals
  • Provides a vivid ethnography of the daily process of filling up overcrowding jails and public hospitals and archival research of government decision-makers
  • Pairs ethnography with archival research to offer a new theory about the way that criminal justice, welfare, and poverty governance work
