The New Jim Crow
By

Rating
In a bold and innovative argument, a rising legal star shows readers how the mass incarceration of a disproportionate number of black men amounts to a devastating system of racial control. This is a terrifying reality that exists in the UK as much as in the US. Despite the triumphant dismantling of the Jim Crow laws, the system that once forced African-Americans into a segregated second-class citizenship still haunts and the criminal justice system still unfairly targets black men and deprives an entire segment of the population of their basic rights.

Reviews

Devastating. . . . Alexander does a fine job of truth-telling, pointing a finger where it rightly should be pointed: at all of us, liberal and conservative, white and black. --Forbes Alexander is absolutely right to fight for what she describes as a "much-needed conversation" about the wide-ranging social costs and divisive racial impact of our criminal-justice policies. --Newsweek Invaluable . . . a timely and stunning guide to the labyrinth of propaganda, discrimination, and racist policies masquerading under other names that comprises what we call justice in America. --Daily Kos Many critics have cast doubt on the proclamations of racism's erasure in the Obama era, but few have presented a case as powerful as Alexander's. --In These Times Carefully researched, deeply engaging, and thoroughly readable. --Publishers Weekly [Written] with rare clarity, depth, and candor. --Counterpunch A call to action for everyone concerned with racial justice and an important tool for anyone concerned with understanding and dismantling this oppressive system. --Sojourners Undoubtedly the most important book published in this century about the U.S. --Birmingham News
