Descrizione libro Spiegel & Grau, 2015. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Jill Leovy has written a gripping and powerful account of urban homicide investigation in the United Stat es. Ghettoside is a provocative examination of how and why murder happens and a fast-paced crime narrative in the vein of David Simon's Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets ." --Gilbert King, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Devil in the G rove " Ghettoside is a brilliant taxonomic investigation into the American violence epidemic disguised as a highly entertaining true crime book. In this account of the senseless shooting death of Bryant Tennelle, Jill Levoy has used the vehicle of a page-turning police procedural to force Americans to face some ugly truths about the root causes of urban violence. She makes a convincing argument that inner-city lawlessness is the legacy of our long history of legal apartheid, where whites 'have the law' and black people do not--and does so in the form of a compelling mystery story." --Matt Taibbi, author of The Divide "This absorbing first book from journalist Leovy traces the investigation and prosecution of a 2007 murder in South Los Angeles, registering along the way a powerful argument about race and our criminal justice system. . . . . Readers may come for Leovy's detective story; they will stay for her lucid social critique." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review). Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0385529988

Descrizione libro Spiegel Grau, United States, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 231 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY USA TODAY AND CHICAGO TRIBUNE A masterly work of literary journalism about a senseless murder, a relentless detective, and the great plague of homicide in America NAMEDONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review The Washington Post The Boston Globe The Globe and Mail BookPage Kirkus Reviews On a warm spring evening in South Los Angeles, a young man is shot and killed on a sidewalk minutes away from his home, one of the thousands of black Americans murdered that year. His assailant runs down the street, jumps into an SUV, and vanishes, hoping to join the scores of killers in American cities who are never arrested for their crimes. But as soon as the case is assigned to Detective John Skaggs, the odds shift. Here is the kaleidoscopic story of the quintessential, but mostly ignored, American murder a ghettoside killing, one young black man slaying another and a brilliant and driven cadre of detectives whose creed is to pursue justice for forgotten victims at all costs. Ghettoside is a fast-paced narrative of a devastating crime, an intimate portrait of detectives and a community bonded in tragedy, and a surprising new lens into the great subject of why murder happens in our cities and how the epidemic of killings might yet be stopped. Praise for Ghettoside A serious and kaleidoscopic achievement . . . [JillLeovy is] a crisp writer with a crisp mind and the ability to boil entire skies of information into hard journalistic rain. Dwight Garner, The New York Times Masterful . . . gritty reporting that matches the police work behind it. Los Angeles Times Moving and engrossing. San Francisco Chronicle Penetrating and heartbreaking . . . Ghettoside points out how relatively little America has cared even as recently as the last decade about the value of young black men s lives. USA Today Functions both as a snappy police procedural and more significantly as a searing indictment of legal neglect . . . Leovy s powerful testimony demands respectful attention. The Boston Globe Gritty, heart-wrenching . . . Everyone needs to read this book. Michael Connelly Ghettoside is remarkable: a deep anatomy of lawlessness. Atul Gawande, author of Being Mortal [Leovy writes] with grace and artistry, and controlled but bone-deep outrage in her new book. . . . Ghettoside, if there s any justice, will be the most important book about urban violence in a generation. David M. Kennedy, The Washington Post Riveting . . . This timely book could not be more important. Associated Press Told with the chilling detail and gripping pace of a prime-time drama. The Economist Leovy s relentless reporting has produced a book packed with valuable, hard-won insights and it serves as a crucial, 366-page reminder that black lives matter. The New York Times Book Review A compelling analysis of the factors behind the epidemic of black-on-black homicide . . . an important book, which deserves a wide audience. Hari Kunzru, The Guardian.
