This thesis examines the current state of mass incarceration in the United States. In addition to noting the historical factors that led to such high levels of imprisonment, I analyze crime trends and the fiscal and social impact that incarceration rates continue to have on American society. Lastly, I provide nonpartisan analysis and recommendations for future reform intended to reduce these costs without sacrificing public safety.
