Reviews

Struck the spark that would eventually light the fire of Black Lives Matter -- Ibram X. Kendi * New York Times *
Devastating. . . Alexander does a fine job of truth-telling, pointing a finger where it rightly should be pointed: at all of us, liberal and conservative, white and black * Forbes *
Invaluable . . . a timely and stunning guide to the labyrinth of propaganda, discrimination, and racist policies masquerading under other names that comprises what we call justice in America * Daily Kos *

Undoubtedly the most important book published in this century about the U.S.

* Birmingham News *
Written with rare clarity, depth, and candor * Counterpunch *
One of the most influential books of the past twenty years * Chronicle of Higher Education *
Transformed forever the way thinkers and activists view the phenomenon of mass incarceration * Slate *
