Let's Get Free: A Hip-Hop Theory of Justice

Let's Get Free: A Hip-Hop Theory of Justice Lowest new price: $14.40
Lowest used price: $7.82
List price: $25.95
Author: Paul Butler
Brand: Brand: New Press, The

Paul Butler was an ambitious federal prosecutor, a Harvard Law grad who gave up his corporate law salary to fight the good fight—until one day he was arrested on the street and charged with a crime he didn’t commit. The Volokh Conspiracy calls Butler’s account of his trial “the most riveting first chapter I have ever read.”

In a book Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree calls “a must read,” Butler looks at places where ordinary citizens meet the justice system—as jurors, witnesses, and in encounters with the police—and explores what “doing the right thing” means in a corrupt system.

Since Let’s Get Free’s publication in spring 2009, Butler has become the go-to person for commentary on criminal justice and race relations: he appeared on ABC News, Good Morning America, and Fox News, published op-eds in the New York Times and other national papers, and is in demand to speak across the country. The paperback edition brings Butler’s groundbreaking and highly controversial arguments—jury nullification (voting “not guilty” in drug cases as a form of protest), just saying “no” when the police request your permission to search, and refusing to work inside the system as a snitch or a prosecutor—to a whole new audience.

The Myth of Presidential Representation

The Myth of Presidential Representation Lowest new price: $19.42
Lowest used price: $10.39
List price: $30.99
Author: B. Dan Wood
Brand: Wood B Dan

In The Myth of Presidential Representation, B. Dan Wood evaluates the nature of American presidential representation, examining the strongly embedded belief - held by the country's founders, as well as current American political culture and social science theory - that presidents should represent the community at large. Citizens expect presidents to reflect prevailing public sentiment and compromise in the national interest. Social scientists express these same ideas through theoretical models depicting presidential behavior as driven by centrism and issue stances adhering to the median voter. Yet partisanship seems to be a dominant theme of modern American politics. Do American presidents adhere to a centrist model of representation as envisioned by the founders? Or, do presidents typically attempt to lead the public toward their own more partisan positions? If so, how successful are they? What are the consequences of centrist versus partisan presidential representation? The Myth of Presidential Representation addresses these questions both theoretically and empirically.

Author: Greg Kelly
Brand: Brand: Paperboy Pr

In one week, Raymond Lee Stewart went on a killing spree that left four people dead in Rockford, Illinois and two people dead in Beloit, Wisconsin. The murders terrified both communities. He was captured with the help of an F.B.I. profiler.

Just when Rockford and Beloit residents thought it was safe to go out again, Raymond Lee Stewart made a daring escape from jail. Once again, the community was terrified. He was re-captured after a two hour manhunt.

Greg Kelly was 10 years old at the time and living in Rockford. For Kelly, this was the boogeyman of his childhood. Fifteen years after the murders and the daring escape, Kelly was interviewing Raymond Lee Stewart as part of his job as Assignment Editor for WGN news in Chicago.

The book is a look at how the events in this story affected the lives of the people who were involved; the sister of the killer who claims that years of abuse led Stewart to his murderous path, the mother of one of the victims who forgave the killer and fought to get him off death row, the son of a victim who turned into an alcoholic after his father's murder, the police officer who shot and helped capture Stewart during his 1982 escape and an F.B.I. profiler who helped local authorities catch the killer.
