There was hope at the demise of the Cold War that the Military Industrial Complex would be dismantled. Instead, it has expanded to many more fronts—including the domestic front, where it is paralleled by the 'Prison Industrial Complex'.... The domestic 'war on crime' calls for a domestic peace agenda" (Magnani and Wray, Beyond Prisons 2006, 4-5).
