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that w e have not ended racial caste in America we have merely redesigned it Jim Crow and legal racial segregation has been replaced by mass incarceration as a system of social control More African Americans are under correctional control today than were enslaved in 1850 Alexander reviews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
