The Perpetual Prisoner Machine : How America Profits from Crime by Joel Dyer

     "And as we toil in the field together, that day will come, when the people will come out of the fields and the factories, the mines, and the mills, the steel and glass office towers, out of the ghettos, the barrios, the reservations, out of the muck and the mire of despair, of hopelessness, and rise up out of the valley -- red people and black people and white people and yellow people and men and women, old and young -- and go to the court, to the citadel of justice, and sit down in their rightful places, and the doors will fling open before them. And they will sit in a court of law that is also a court of justice".
     -- Haywood Burns, President National Lawyers Guild
