Reviews

One of the most influential books of the past twenty years * Chronicle of Higher Education *
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 *
Transformed forever the way thinkers and activists view the phenomenon of mass incarceration * Slate *
Undoubtedly the most important book published in this century about the U.S. * Birmingham News *
Like many white people, I've tried to deepen my understanding of systemic racism. Alexander's book offers an eye-opening look into how the criminal justice system unfairly targets communities of color, and especially Black communities. It's especially good at explaining the history and the numbers behind mass incarceration -- Bill Gates
It is in no small part thanks to Alexander's account that civil rights organizations such as Black Lives Matter have focused so much of their energy on the criminal justice system -- Adam Shatz * London Review of Books *
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 *
Alexander deserves to be compared to Du Bois in her ability to distill and lay out as mighty human drama a complex argument and history * New York Review of Books *
