The epilogue ends the book by speaking to it’s relevance to the present historical moment, characterized as it is by increased attention to reform, notions of community justice and a growing emphasis on jails. The epilogue cautions that current reforms may signify the reorganization of the carceral state and suggests that the book can be read as a case study of one community’s production and contestation of this insidious phase of the carceral state. The epilogue ends by gesturing toward the interdisciplinary and stirring field of critical prison studies as the source of needed abolitionist theorizing and historicizing of the present moment.
