"...[A] must-read for anyone interested in prisoner reentry and social justice in America." -- Joan Petersilia, Ph.D., Professor of Criminology, University of California, Irvine, and author of When Prisoners Come Home

"...[C]ombines a compelling theoretical perspective with a detailed practical guide to fashioning an effective public policy strategy..." -- Marc Mauer, Assistant Director, The Sentencing Project, and author of Race to Incarcerate

"Jeremy Travis masterfully analyzes the challenges that arise from what he so aptly terms ‘the iron law of corrections’" -- Ashbel T. Wall II, Director, Rhode Island Department of Corrections

"This tour de force is perhaps the best policy book I’ve ever read—conceptually rich, empirically compelling, and savvy to boot." -- Christopher Edley Jr., Dean, School of Law, University of California, Berkeley, and former Director, The Civil Rights Project, Harvard University

I highlighted important points all the way through this book! As a correctional educator and author who is interested in prisoner re-entry, "But They All Come Back" covered it all with thorough reasearch along with compassion. This is a must read for ALL citizens interested in improving our society by keeping ex-prisoners successfully functioning as free individuals. Look here for the answers to lowering recidivism and the prison populations. The author has my total respect!
