Text: The number of Americans arrested, brought to court, and incarcerated has skyrocketed in recent decades. Criminal defendants come from all races and economic walks of life, but they experience punishment in vastly different ways. "Privilege and Punishment" examines how racial and class inequalities are embedded in the attorney-client relationship, providing a devastating portrait of inequality and injustice within and beyond the criminal courts.

Stanford American Studies Program presents a talk by Matthew Clair, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Stanford on his award-winning book, Privilege and Punishment: How Race and Class Matter in Criminal Court.
