Ruth Gilmore and Beyond the Prison Industrial Complex

Ruth Wilson Gilmore is Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Her publications include Golden Gulag: Prisons, Surplus, Crisis, and Opposition in Globalizing California (2007) — about which the San Francisco Chronicle said “Now, if you want to understand why progressive California leads the Western world with its regressive system of punishment, Gilmore’s “Golden Gulag” is the first must-read book of the 21st century”. She has also published How to Stop a Prison in Your Town (with the California Prison Moratorium Project collective); along with many articles and interviews. In addition to the California Prison Moratorium Project, she was a founding member of Critical Resistance; the Central California Environmental Justice Network (of which she is past president); and many other social justice organizations.
