Forlagets beskrivelse
?A thought-provoking and important analysis of oppression? (Library Journal), Nobody is a powerful and eye-opening examination of the deeper meaning behind the string of deaths of unarmed citizens like Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Freddie Gray??a worthy and necessary addition to the contemporary canon of civil rights literature? (New York Times).

Unarmed citizens shot by police. Drinking water turned to poison. Mass incarcerations. We?ve heard the stories. Now a leading public intellectual and acclaimed journalist offers a powerful, paradigm-shifting analysis of America?s current state of emergency, finding in these events a larger and more troubling truth about race, class, and what it means to be ?Nobody.?

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. 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.

?An impassioned analysis of headline-making cases? (Kirkus Reviews), Nobody is a keen observation of the challenges and contradictions of American democracy, a must-read for anyone wanting to better understand the race and class issues that continue to leave their mark on our country today.
