Adaner Usmani, assistant professor of sociology and social studies at Harvard University, joins us to discuss the current wave of violent crime in the US, the law-and-order backlashes of prior decades, and the origins of mass incarceration.
The Jacobin Show airs every Wednesday at 6 PM ET and offers a socialist perspective on class and capitalism in the twenty-first century, the failures of liberalism, and the prospects of rebuilding a left labor movement in the US. The hosts are Jen Pan, Ariella Thornhill, and Paul Prescod.
