Sex Panic and the Punitive State
One evening, while watching the news, Roger N. Lancaster was startled by
a report that a friend, a gay male school teacher, had been arrested
for a sexually based crime. The resulting hysteria threatened to ruin
the life of an innocent man. In this passionate and provocative book,
Lancaster blends astute analysis, robust polemic, ethnography, and
personal narrative to delve into the complicated relationship between
sexuality and punishment in our society. Drawing on classical social
science, critical legal studies, and queer theory, he tracks the rise of
a modern suburban culture of fear and develops new insights into the
punitive logic that has put down deep roots in everyday American life.
"By design this penal system churns the poor and marginal, rendering
them all but unemployable, thus poorer and ever more marginal," writes
anthropologist Roger Lancaster. "No legitimate theory of corrections,
crime, or social order justifies this approach, which can only be
understood as vindictive."
