    Om Broken Ground

    2011 Outstanding Title, University Press Books for Public and Secondary School LibrariesBroken Ground employs a construction project in the Oregon desert as the basis for a story with far-reaching political and moral implications. Hank Lafleur has been sent to supervise the project, which is a prison-for-profit financed by a multinational corporation under government contract, and meant to house felons, illegal immigrants, and, as Lafleur comes to learn, political prisoners from Latin America. Broken Ground is remarkable for its prophetic vision of the hollow securities promised by incarceration and of the effects of " privatization" as an armature of American imperialism - in both the domestic and international realms.
