"Beyond Prisons" is a radical and provocative book about the criminal justice system, based on the American Friends Service Committee’s decades of experience with the issue.  Readers looking for ways to engage more personally with the questions presented are invited to use this study guide to facilitate that eagerness.  This study guide seeks to draw attention to the socioeconomic, moral, and spiritual aspects of the criminal justice issue. It is intended to encourage personal, creative, and nonviolent responses and alternatives to the current ways in which our society handles behavior that is considered “criminal.”
