Bang Up and Smash is an overview of women’s prisons in the UK, and a political analysis of their physical and ideological construction. This 2nd edition contains an updated introduction and resources section.
From the moment of arrest, to coming home, Bang Up and Smash critically engages with the procedures, concepts and apparatus the state relies on, and the economics behind the expansion of the prison industrial complex. Bang Up and Smash is a practical guide to women’s prisons in the UK, and a rallying call to attack.
Solidarity is a weapon, and abolition is not enough…
