View all copies of this ISBN edition:

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. Cited in court decisions and Oscar speeches and praised by public policy folks, politicians, law professors, grassroots activists, and prisoners themselves, Michelle Alexander’s groundbreaking book argues that “we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.”

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