Books Not Bars is a powerful indictment of the growing "prison industrial complex" in America-a system in which youth of color are four to five times more likely to be incarcerated than educated. Examples of peer activism, youth organizing, and mobilization around prison issues provide young audiences with tangible ways to get involved with the movement to reform the U.S. juvenile justice system. In California, young activists score a victory when they convince the Board of Corrections to deny pre-approved state funding for Alameda County's effort to build the biggest per capita juvenile hall in the state.
