Summary: ''Michelle Alexander's brave and bold new book paints a haunting picture in which dreary felon garb, post-prison joblessness, and loss of voting rights now do the stigmatizing work once done by colored-only water fountains and legally segregated schools. With dazzling candor, Alexander argues that we all pay the cost of the new Jim Crow.'' -Lani Guinier, professor at Harvard Law School and author ofLift Every Voice: Turning a Civil Rights Setback into a New Vision of Social Justicean
dThe Miner's Canary: Enlisting Race, Resisting Power, Transforming Democracy ''For every century there is a crisis in our democracy, the response to which defines how future generations view those who were alive at the time. In the 18th century it was the transatlantic slave trade, in the 19th century it was slavery, in the 20th century it was Jim Crow. Today it is mass incarceration. Alexander's book offers a timely and original framework for understanding mass incarceration, its roots to Jim Crow, our modern caste system, and what must be done to eliminate it. This book is a call to action.'' -Benjamin Todd Jealous, President and CEO, NAACP ''With imprisonment now the principal instrument of our social policy directed toward poorly educated black men, Michelle Alexander argues convincingly that the huge racial disparity of punishment in America is not the mere result of neutral state action. She sees the rise of mass incarceration as opening up a new front in the historic struggle for racial justice. And, she's right. If you care about justice in America, you need to read this book!'' -Glenn C. Loury, economist at Brown University and author ofThe Anatomy of Racial Inequality and Race, Incarceration and American Values ''After readingThe New Jim Crow, Michelle Alexander's stunning work of scholarship, one gains the terrible realization that, for people of color, the American criminal justice system resembles the Soviet U
