Abstract:

In 1970s America, politicians began 'getting tough' on drugs, crime, and welfare. These campaigns helped expand the nation's penal system, discredit welfare programs, and cast blame for the era's social upheaval on racialized deviants that the state was not accountable to serve or represent. This text sheds light on how this unprecedented growth of the penal system and the evisceration of the nation's welfare programs developed hand in hand.
