Novel Justice is a book event series hosted by the Wilson Center for Science and Justice. We invite authors to discuss recently published criminal justice books and to engage in Q&A with faculty and students. Dr. Christopher Seeds is an Assistant Professor of Criminology, Law, and Society at the University of California, Irvine. His book, Death by Prison: The Emergence of Life without Parole and Perpetual Confinement, is an ambitious overview of the rise of life sentences for American prisoners. Dr. Kevin Dahaghi, Post-doctoral Fellow at the Wilson Center, moderated.
