The New Jim Crow

The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander Book Summary

Named one of the most important nonfiction books of the 21st century by Entertainment Weekly‚ Slate‚ Chronicle of Higher Education‚ Literary Hub, Book Riot‚ and Zora

A tenth-anniversary edition of the iconic bestseller—“one of the most influential books of the past 20 years,” according to the Chronicle of Higher Education—with a new preface by the author

“It is in no small part thanks to Alexander’s account that civil rights organizations such as Black Lives Matter have focused so much of their energy on the criminal justice system.” 
—Adam Shatz, London Review of Books

Seldom does a book have the impact of Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow. Since it was first published in 2010, it has been cited in judicial decisions and has been adopted in campus-wide and community-wide reads; it helped inspire the creation of the Marshall Project and the new $100 million Art for Justice Fund; it has been the winner of numerous prizes, including the prestigious NAACP Image Award; and it has spent nearly 250 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

Most important of all, it has spawned a whole generation of criminal justice reform activists and organizations motivated by Michelle Alexander’s unforgettable argument that “we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.” As the Birmingham News proclaimed, it is “undoubtedly the most important book published in this century about the U.S.”

Now, ten years after it was first published, The New Press is proud to issue a tenth-anniversary edition with a new preface by Michelle Alexander that discusses the impact the book has had and the state of the criminal justice reform movement today.

- Very factual & Eye Opening5 star

The author brings up multiple-facts, provokes the reader to question the claims in the book, and guides the reader through historical examples. This book is for every US Citizen (White, Black, Asian, Native American, etc). The people who left bad reviews & say this book is propaganda never read the book. They could have at least read the audio bool.

- Informative & Powerful5 star

Although not a light read, this book is thought provoking & informative. It explains the reasons why there’s a system that is beyond flawed. Knowing the history, laws, politics, etc. gives you a greater understanding of why the system was designed the way it is and what needs to be done to address systemic racism.

- Transformative5 star

The author does an outstanding job of chaining the historical events to the current state of race relations and ultimately down the path of mass incarceration. I’m a history buff, but many of the things that she speaks surprisingly are new to me. Cross referencing all these historical events brought profound meaning to how all these laws are interconnected to keeping a social order distinctly meant to keep the people of color conformed to their current way of life and to ensure the white majority keeps their social hierarchy. This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the past and present of systemic racism in societal law.

A lot of disingenuous arguments that have to be taken out of context. Just propaganda.
