Anmeldelser

«Essential reading for those weary of platitude-driven texts on race and criminal justice and in the market for an empirically grounded political analysis that points to practicable solutions to one of the biggest problems of our day.»

Touré F. Reed, author of <i>Toward Freedom</i>

«A provocative and expansive critique from the left of the loose collection of protest actions, organizations, and ideological movements-whether prison abolition or calls to defund the police-that make up what we now call Black Lives Matter...After Black Lives Matter should be commended both for the clarity of its message and the bravery of its convictions.»

Jay Caspian Kang, New Yorker

«A virtuoso performance! Weighing the successes and limitations of Black Lives Matter, Johnson concludes that identity-based mobilization-confusing what people look like with what they need-cannot substitute for majoritarian political coalition-building.»

Barbara J. Fields, Columbia University

«A compelling argument for reinstating a meaningful anticapitalist analysis and politics into the fight to end police violence and the harms of the criminal justice system in the United States. Readers will undoubtedly come away with new perspectives that deepen their understanding of the successes and limitations of Black Lives Matter and its political vision.»

Leslie Kern, author of <i>Feminist City</i>

«Cedric Johnson delivers that increasingly rare experience in political writing: surprise. Whether telling the story of Louis Armstrong's first hearing of Mack the Knife or reporting on the inequities of Chicago's public transportation system or mounting a mini-memoir of his encounter with crime in Louisiana and Rochester, Johnson invests the drama of Marxist theory with new energy and vital detail. No matter how dark and dreary the landscape may be, it gets lit up wherever Johnson casts his sharp and appraising eye.»

Corey Robin, author of <i>The Enigma of Clarence Thomas</i>

«A brilliant scholar who is first and foremost concerned with equality and justice. It's those very commitments that lead him, in After Black Lives Matter, to question today's antiracism and its nostrums.»

Bhaskar Sunkara, founding editor of <i>Jacobin</i> and author of <i>The Socialist Manifesto</i>
