Editorial Reviews


“D. Quentin Miller is an outstanding interpreter of James Baldwin. The breadth of his book is quite stunning. After reading this book, I now know every instance in which Baldwin mentions or critiques law, the police, and prisons in his writings, including several essays that have not been collected. Truly a brilliant analysis of this under-researched area of Baldwin studies.” —Richard Schur, associate professor of English, Drury University


A Criminal Power is an excellent book, an important book, a watershed book in James Baldwin criticism. D. Quentin Miller’s use of a variety of critical approaches, including biographical criticism, historical criticism, and the insights of critical legal studies and critical race studies coalesce to create a truly remarkable and fresh evaluation of Baldwin’s entire career.” —William Lyne, professor of English, Western Washington University
