Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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
“Alexander is absolutely right to fight for what she describes as a ‘much-needed conversation’ about the wide-ranging social costs and divisive racial impact of our criminal justice policies.” Newsweek
“Carefully researched, deeply engaging, and thoroughly readable.” Publishers Weekly
