Politics & Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. ᠡ ePUB Author Michelle Alexander ᢁ Starred Review Contrary to the rosy picture of race embodied in Barack Obama s political success and Oprah Winfrey s financial success, legal scholar Alexander argues vigorously and persuasively that w e have not ended racial caste in America we have merely redesigned it Jim Crow and legal racial segregation has been replaced by mass incarceration as a system of social control More African Americans are under correctional control today than were enslaved in 1850 Alexander reviews American racial history from the colonies to the Clinton administration, delineating its transformation into the war on drugs She offers an acute analysis of the effect of this mass incarceration upon former inmates who will be discriminated against, legally, for the rest of their lives, denied employment, housing, education, and public benefits Most provocatively, she reveals how both the move toward colorblindness and affirmative action may blur our vision of injustice most Americans know and don t know the truth about mass incarcerationbut her carefully researched, deeply engaging, and thoroughly readable book should change that Feb Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Explosive debutalarming, provocative and convincing.Michelle
