The New Jim Crow

Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

This well-researched history of modern mass incarceration in the United States has become a classic in the racial justice literature. The author’s background as a legal scholar contributes to the delivery of a profound and often disturbing account of the U.S. criminal justice system’s role in damaging our country’s communities of color. For those who want to become more informed about the complexity of race issues in America, this book provides an invaluable account of the challenges before us.
