To fully understand histories of U.S. sheriffs and county jails, I explore the impact of controlled environments on the architectural, spatial, political, and cultural development of urban areas. My research suggests American sheriffs and jails may be critical tools used to negotiate and maintain the unique form of democracy in the U.S.
