  • Defunding prisons and policing are front-page news at the moment. The movements seeking these goals will only gather steam in the upcoming years.
  • Lesage de la Haye is French, which provides a unique angle on current prison abolitionist thinking in the US. At the same time, his arguments and the sentiments behind them are universal and applicable to prisons everywhere.
  • Movements to defund and abolish prisons and police are closely tied to BLM movements, which will also remain important social forces—and readerships—in upcoming years.
  • Lesage de la Haye’s position as an ex-con and current psychoanalyst makes his perspective fresh and intriguing.
