In 2005, Shaw was arrested in Chicago for possession of MDMA and was sent to prison for one year.

Shaw not only looks at the current prison system and its many destructive flaws, but also at how American culture regards criminals and those who live outside of society. He begins his story at Chicagos Cook County Jail, and uses its sprawling, highly corrupt infrastructure to build upon his overarching argument.This is an insiders look at the forgotten or excluded segments of our society, the disenfranchised lifestyles and subcultures existing in what Shaw calls the exile nation.

They are those who lost some or all of their ability to participate in the full opportunities of society because of an arrest or conviction for a non-violent, drug-related, or moral offense, those who cannot participate in the credit economy, and those with lifestyle choices that involve radical politics and sexuality, cognitive liberty, and unorthodox spiritual and healing practices. Together they make up the new evolutionary counterculture of the most significant epoch in human history.
