Seldom does a book have the impact of Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow. Since it was first published in 2010, it has been cited in judicial decisions and has been adopted in campus-wide and community-wide reads; it helped inspire the creation of the Marshall Project and the new $100 million Art for Justice Fund; it has been the winner of numerous prizes, including the prestigious NAACP Image Award; and it has spent nearly 250 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Most important of all, it has spawned a whole generation of criminal justice reform activists and organizations motivated by Michelle Alexander’s unforgettable argument that “we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.” As the Birmingham News proclaimed, it is “undoubtedly the most important book published in this century about the U.S.” Now, ten years after it was first published, The New Press is proud to issue a tenth-anniversary edition with a new preface by Michelle Alexander that discusses the impact the book has had and the state of the criminal justice reform movement today.

Professional reviews

"Is the United States intentionally creating a class of people whose rights are being violated in the name of public safety? Are we intentionally excluding an entire subgroup of citizens--convicted criminals, who are mainly African-American males--from participating in our democracy? This book tackles these provocative questions, and the answers are not pretty. Narrator Karen Chilton reads this work as an academic analysis and a social critique, and she succeeds on both levels. Her slightly nasal voice is calm and assured, and she paces herself so we can follow the potent arguments presented by the author. At times she sounds too professorial, a style that causes her to lose energy, but overall Chilton effectively captures the tone and intent of this important study. R.I.G.
