The offender is still a human being, a candidate for rehabilitation, restoration and adequate reintegration into the society as a contributing member. With 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's incarcerated population, the United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any country in the world. The implications of mass incarceration in the United States are reflected in social marginalization for individuals with conviction records, economic impoverishment, political disenfranchisement and HIV/AIDS in U.S. prisons. According to the 2008 report of the Pew Charity Trust, there are now more than 1 in 100 Americans behind bars with Hispanics and Blacks consisting of more than 65% of the U.S. prison population. Locked Up and Locked Down: Multitude Lingers in Limbo: Revised Edition comes with new chapters, latest research and Solutions for strategic solution development and intervention in the high rates of incarceration and recidivism in U.S. prisons.
