Abstract

In Sharing This Walk: An Ethnography of Prison Life and the PCC in Brazil, Karina Biondi offers an ethnographic study of São Paulo’s state prisons, focusing particularly on the prison gang Primeiro Comando da Capital (PCC). This elegant and rigorously argued book offers a compelling critique of existing depictions of prison life in Brazil and challenges entrenched understandings of ‘organised crime’, writes Eraldo S. Santos.
