About the Author

Rena Steinzor is a Professor of Law at the University of Maryland's Francis King Carey School of Law. She is the president of the Center for Progressive Reform (, a think tank composed of sixty working academics from universities across the country that is a nationally recognized source of research and opinion on public health, worker and consumer safety, and the environment. Steinzor's publications include Mother Earth and Uncle Sam: How Pollution and Hollow Government Hurt our Kids (2007), The People's Agents and the Battle to Protect the American Public: Special Interests, Government, and Threats to Health, Safety, and the Environment (with Sidney Shapiro, 2010) and Rescuing Science from Politics (co-edited with Wendy Wagner, 2006).


'Rena Steinzor's powerful and compelling Why Not Jail? Industrial Catastrophes, Corporate Malfeasance, and Government Inaction argues for criminal prosecution of both corporations and corporate executives ... The core of her book is a close examination of a series of disasters - the BP oil gusher in the Gulf of Mexico, the Massey mine collapse, the contaminated drugs from the New England Compounding Center - showing that while unintentional, each of these industrial catastrophes was the direct result of corporate malfeasance, exactly the circumstance that should be punished criminally.' Robert Weissman, Public Citizen News
