All Alone in the World: Children of the Incarcerated

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Nell Bernstein

Narrated By: Donna Postel

Date: April 2020

Duration: 8 hours 43 minutes

Summary:

One in ten American children has a parent under criminal justice supervision-incarcerated, on probation, or on parole. One in thirty-three American children-and one in eight African American children-goes to sleep without access to a parent because that parent is in jail. Despite these staggering numbers, the children of prisoners remain largely invisible to society.

Following in the tradition of the bestseller Random Family, journalist Nell Bernstein shows, through the deeply moving stories of real families, how the children of the incarcerated are routinely punished for their parents' status: ignored, neglected, stigmatized, and endangered, with minimal effort made to help them cope.

Topics range from children's experiences at the time of their parent's arrest, to laws and policies that force even low-level offenders to forfeit their parental rights, to alternative sanctions that take into account prisoners' status as mothers and fathers.

All Alone in the World defines a crucial aspect of criminal justice and, in doing so, illuminates a critical new realm of human rights.
