Description

  • New Press
  • Once in a great while a book comes along that changes the way we see the world and helps to fuel a nationwide social
    movement. The New Jim Crow is such a book. Praised by Harvard Law professor Lani Guinier as "brave and bold," this book
    directly challenges the notion that the election of Barack Obama signals a new era of colorblindness. With dazzling
    candor, legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues that "we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely
    redesigned it." By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal
    justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control—relegating millions to a permanent second-class
    status—even as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness. In the words of Benjamin Todd Jealous, president
    and CEO of the NAACP, this book is a "call to action."

    Called "stunning" by Pulitzer Prize–winning historian David Levering Lewis, "invaluable" by the Daily Kos, "explosive"
    by Kirkus, and "profoundly necessary" by the Miami Herald, this updated and revised paperback edition of The New Jim
    Crow, now with a foreword by Cornel West, is a must-read for all people of conscience.
