The Prison and The Gallows: The Politics of Mass Incarceration in America by Marie Gottschalk

From The Prison and the Gallows on Google Books:

Gottschalk demonstrates how the rise of the Carceral state comes out of slavery, and many of the justification which is used arises from racial understandings of “natural slavery” (Aristotle, Sepulveda) which provided the philosophical underpinnings for the American slave trade in many ways.
