Marie Morelle, Frédéric Le Marcis, and Julia Hornberger edited Confinement, Punishment and Prisons in Africa (Routledge, 2021). Winding up with the rhetoric of exceptionalism, they present a nuanced critique of the prison experience in diverse detention facilities across Africa. What makes their work so intriguing are the comparisons they were able to draw across a wide range of case studies and research approaches.
