How Should the Left Think About Crime?

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.
