In this assessment of incapacitation, the authors show the increasing reliance of restraint to justify imprisonment. They analyze the existing theoretical literature on incapacitation effects, review the existing empirical research on the topic, report a new study, and explore in detail the links between what is known about incapacitation and the proper construction of criminal justice policy.
