    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Kerwin Kaye offers an ethnographic account of drug courts and mandatory treatment centers as a system of coercion, demonstrating how the state uses notions of rehabilitation as a means of social regulation. Enforcing Freedom presents a critical perspective on the punitive side of criminal-justice reform and points toward alternative paths forward.

    Reviews

    Allison McKim, author of Addicted to Rehab: Race, Gender, and Drugs in the Era of Mass Incarceration:
    Kaye examines how American institutions that govern illegal drug use, especially drug courts and treatment programs, define and treat 'addiction.' This book offers new findings that show how efforts at drug control regulate citizenship and reflect racial and gender politics, ultimately revealing the intimate character of neoliberal state governance.
