Far from advocating the complete abolition of prisons, Schenwar simply argues that they shouldn’t be the only approach. She describes how highly effective alternative justice programs in the US and other countries do a better job of both preventing recidivism and providing meaningful restitution to victims. Above all, however, Schenwar seeks to convince her readers that prisoners, for all their hurtful deeds, shouldn’t be treated as "non-persons." Her book is a passionate argument that "throwing away the key" ultimately hurts individuals and society.
