New York Times Bestseller New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice "An essential and groundbreaking text in the effort to understand how American criminal justice went so badly awry." —Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of Between the World and Me In A Colony in a Nation, New York Times best-selling author and Emmy Award–winning news anchor Chris Hayes upends the national conversation on policing and democracy. Drawing on wide-ranging historical, social, and political analysis, as well as deeply personal experiences with law enforcement, Hayes contends that our country has fractured in two: the Colony and the Nation. In the Nation, the law is venerated. In the Colony, fear and order undermine civil rights. With great empathy, Hayes seeks to understand this systemic divide, examining its ties to racial inequality, the omnipresent threat of guns, and the dangerous and unfortunate results of choices made by fear.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 There are two ways to experience the police in America: as the people you call when there is a problem, or as the people who are called on you. For many, the police are the ones who are called on them. #2 I was a college student at the time, and I was carrying weed to a Republican convention. I was almost caught, but fortunately nothing bad came out of it. With the advantage of hindsight, I can look back and know that if I had been arrested, it would’ve been no more than an embarrassing hassle. #3 I have never been to jail or prison, but I have spent a lot of time on the ground reporting on criminal justice and the growing social movement to reform it. #4 The United States has the most incarcerated citizens in the world, and it has done so for more than four decades. The country’s homicide rate has declined sharply from its peak, but it remains higher than that of any other developed democracy.

Dear reader, please note that there are two books available in the column. This edition of the book covers the information comes out from a 3 years research and analysis. *Check the end of the description to know more. Almost eight years after Barack Obama's election as the nation's first black president -an event that engendered a sense of optimism among many Americans about the future of race relations1 - a series of flashpoints around the U.S. has exposed deep racial divides and reignited a national conversation about race. A new Pew Research Center survey finds profound differences between black and white adults in their views on racial discrimination, barriers to black progress and the prospects for change. Blacks, far more than whites, say black people are treated unfairly across different realms of life, from dealing with the police to applying for a loan or mortgage. And, for many blacks, racial equality remains an elusive goal. An overwhelming majority of blacks (88%) say the country needs to continue making changes for blacks to have equal rights with whites, but 43% are skeptical that such changes will ever occur. An additional 42% of blacks believe that the country will eventually make the changes needed for blacks to have equal rights with whites, and just 8% say the country has already made the necessary changes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most of the analysis in this book is based on telephone interviews conducted Feb. 29 to May 8, 2016, among a national sample of 3,769 adults, 18 years of age or older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia (977 respondents were interviewed on a landline telephone, and 2,792 were interviewed on a cellphone, including 1,676 who had no landline telephone).

How did compliant colonials with strong ties to Europe get the notion to become an independent nation? Perhaps the seeds of liberty were planted in the 1735 historic courtroom battle for the freedom of the press. Or maybe the French and Indian War did it, when colonists were called "Americans" for the first time by the English, and the great English army proved itself not so formidable after all. But for sure when King George III started levying some heavy handed taxes on the colonies, the break from the motherland was imminent. With such enthralling characters as George Washington, Sam Adams, Patrick Henry, Eliza Pinckney, and Alexander Hamilton throughout, From Colonies to Country is an amazing story of a nation making transformation.
