This is a book that needed to be written. For the first time we now have a comprehensive and sophisticated historical analysis of the racial dynamics of felony disenfranchisement as it evolved in the post-Civil War South. It's not a pretty picture, but it helps us to understand how we came to a point where U.S. policies in this regard are far out of line with the rest of the democratic world. (Marc Mauer, The Sentencing Project, and author of Race to Incarcerate)
