The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander; Cornel West (Introduction by)In a bold and innovative argument, a rising legal star shows readers how the mass incarceration of a disproportionate number of black men amounts to a devastating system of racial control. This is a terrifying reality that exists in the UK as much as in the US.
