"En este revolucionario trabajo que ha permanecido por mas de dos anos en la lista de los libros mas vendidos del New York Times, Michelle Alexander argumenta que 'no hemos erradicado las castas raciales en Estados Unidos; las hemos meramente redisenado.' Al apuntar a hombres negros por medio de la Guerra contra las Drogas y diezmando las comunidades de gente de color, el sistema de justicia criminal de Estados Unidos funciona como un sistema contemporaneo de control racial-al relegar a millones de personas a un estatus de segunda clase-incluso mientras este se adhiere al principio de ceguera para los colores. Los hispanoamericanos estan ampliamente representados en este sistema de encarcelamiento masivo que Alexander describe: 15 por ciento de todos los latinos en Estados Unidos dicen que ellos o alguien de su familia inmediata ha sido arrestado dentro de los ultimos cinco anos; y que cerca del 25 por ciento de los latinos de entre 18 y 29 anos comparten esta experiencia. Los latinos representan cerca de la mitad de todos los convictos en las prisiones federales, y en California (uno de los pocos estados que cuenta con informacion sobre esto), los latinos componen un 40 por ciento de todos los arrestos. Catedraticos tales como Tom Romero han sugerido que The New Jim Crow provee de los fundamentos esenciales para comprender el 'nuevo sistema Jim Crow' de inmigracion y detencion en los Estados Unidos al dia de hoy. Millones de familias de habla hispana afectadas por este sistema apreciaran contar con una edicion en espanol de este libro que ha sido considerado como 'invaluable' por el Daily Kos y 'explosivo' por Kirkus Reviews"-- Provided by publisher.
In this revolutionary work that has remained for more than two years in the New York Times bestseller list, Michelle Alexander argues that "we have not eradicated racial castes in the United States, we have merely redissolved them." By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of people of color, the US criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control - relegating millions of people to second- Class - even while it adheres to the principle of blindness for colors. Hispanic Americans are widely represented in this system of mass incarceration that Alexander describes: 15 percent of all Latinos in the United States say they or someone in their immediate family has been arrested within the last five years; And that about 25 percent of Latinos between the ages of 18 and 29 share this experience. Latinos make up about half of all convicts in federal prisons, and California (one of the few states with information on this), Latinos make up 40 percent of all arrests. Professors such as Tom Romero have suggested that The New Jim Crow provides the essential foundations for understanding the "new Jim Crow system" of immigration and detention in the United States today. Millions of Spanish-speaking families affected by this system will appreciate having a Spanish edition of this book that has been considered as "invaluable" by the Daily Kos and "explosive" by Kirkus Reviews.
