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.
Cornel West is Class of 1943 University Professor in the Center for African American Studies at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. He is considered one of America's most provocative public individuals and has been a champion for racial justice since childhood. His writing, speaking, and teaching weave together the traditions of the black Baptist church, progressive politics, and jazz. The "New York Times" has praised his "ferocious moral vision."
Michelle Alexander says that many of the gains of the civil rights movement have been undermined by the mass incarceration of blacks in the war on drugs. More at NPR.org
