"In recent decades, growth in the number of people in US prisons has been the largest in history -- the prison population increased by more than one million between 1980 and 2000. ... Despite this tremendous growth, the prison construction boom has received relatively little attention. It is remarkable that a public undertaking as far-reaching as the American prison expansion, which affects millions of incarcerated individuals, influences millions more family and community members, and consumes billions of public dollars, would receive so little empirical analysis and public scrutiny." -- The New Landscape of Imprisonment, from The Urban Institute
