    Description

    Protests in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the United States following the death of Michael Brown revealed something far deeper than a passionate display of age-old racial frustrations; they unveiled a public chasm that has been growing for years, as America has consistently and intentionally denied significant segments of its population access to full freedom and prosperity.

    In Nobody, scholar and journalist Marc Lamont Hill presents a powerful and thought-provoking analysis of race and class by examining a growing crisis in America: the existence of a group of citizens who are made vulnerable, exploitable, and disposable through the machinery of unregulated capitalism, public policy, and social practice. These are the people considered "Nobody" in contemporary America. Through on-the-ground reporting and careful research, Hill shows how this Nobody class has emerged over time and how forces in America have worked to preserve and exploit it in ways that are both humiliating and harmful.

    To make his case, Hill carefully reconsiders the details of tragic events like the deaths of Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, and Freddie Gray and the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. He delves deeply into a host of alarming trends including mass incarceration, overly aggressive policing, broken court systems, shrinking job markets, and the privatization of public resources, showing time and time again the ways the current system is designed to worsen the plight of the vulnerable.

    Timely and eloquent, Nobody is a keen observation of the challenges and contradictions of American democracy, a must-listen for anyone wanting to better understand the race and class issues that continue to leave their mark on our country today.

    Well Done

    I actually have the hard copy of this book and I've read it already. I've assigned to my classes. it is a great exploration of our current political, social, economic moment in American history. I think all citizens should read this book. much of it has been discussed in the Press. however, Professor Hill unpacks important histories and theories to fully understand these horrible yet important events.

    An excellent book on more recent struggles

    This is a very well written book about some of the more recent events of the last century or so, that have effected the poor and black communities in powerfully negative ways. Showing how our system really is biased against minorities and the poor. A great read backed up by lots of facts that can certainly open your eyes.

    Civil liberties of America are dead

    The book tells the forthright story of how we have become a selfish throw away society by throwing away people who are "not like us" while gutting legal due process and governmental protections. A good book for a critical thinker willing to consider how we got to where we are in our social justice and our broken legal system where economic crime is celebrated or goes unpunished and petty crimes are considered horrific. No one is innocent nor spared in this treatise.

    Great book

    Great book with many specific examples of racial inequality. Some points were a bit of a stretch but overall was an incredible book that shines a light on some of the darker parts of modern American society.

    Essential to learn about the black struggle in USA

    One of the best new age writings on the topic of black racial struggle, it helped me fill in the gaps of my knowledge, helping me to bridge and complete the picture between old and current situation, on top of that it is very light

    Great book, well written, clear facts

    This book was amazing. Marc Hill did a wonderful job with his story. He shows the facts about ever case and let’s you draw your on conclusions, he does eventually tell you his perspective but he explains so much. He is a wonderful writer and the books was just fantastic.
