The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander is not just about what the subtitle says, “Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness”, though that’s an important subject for us all now. It’s about the fact that we still have a seriously evil caste system, and how that came about. To quote just a few appraisals of the book:

From the Birmingham News: “Undoubtedly the most important book published in this century about the United States.”

From the Miami Herald:  “A troubling and profoundly necessary book”.

From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:  “A searing indictment”.
