Editorial Reviews

Review

"Changing the Guard is first-rate analysis of a moribund industry. Real experts point toward a crucial reform." -- Morgan O. Reynolds, former Chief Economist, U.S. Department of Labor

"Changing the Guard is the authoritative and definitive book on prison privatization. It brilliantly examines the full range of issues." -- E.S. Savas, professor, School of Public Affairs, Baruch College, City University of New York

"If you want to understand private prisons . . . you need the information and analysis in this book." -- Adrian T. Moore, executive director, Reason Public Policy Institute

"So much written about private prisons is tendentious and ideological, in contrast to the carefully researched contributions here." -- Charles H. Logan, professor of sociology, University of Connecticut (from the foreword)

This should be remembered as a classic piece of cherry picking, created largely to endorse the wholesale commodification of human beings.
