Jarrod Shanahan returns to talk about his new book Captives: How Rikers Island Took NYC Hostage, out TODAY from Verso. Captives it the history of Rikers Island as a progressive reform turned riotous penal colony in the neoliberal era. While today it's slated to be closed, the book shows how the plan to build new state-of-the-art humanitarian jails is repeating the mistake.
