Summary 'Children of the Prison Boom' describes the devastating effects of America's experiment in mass incarceration for a generation of vulnerable children. Wakefield and Wildeman find that parental imprisonment leads to increased mental health and behavioural problems, infant mortality, and child homelessness which translate into large-scale increases in racial inequality.
