Anti-Intellectualism in American Life book cover
Anti-Intellectualism in American Life

Calificación de Goodreads
This Pulitzer Prize-winning book sheds light on the prevalence of anti-intellectualism in American society. The author delves into the evolution of American education and how it has impacted the concept of intellect.

America on Fire book cover
America on Fire
The Untold History of Police Violence and Black Rebellion Since the 1960s
Elizabeth Hinton - 2021-05-18
Calificación de Goodreads
"America on Fire" takes readers on a troubling journey through the history of racial injustice and its consequences, including urban uprisings and rebellions sparked by police violence. Through exclusive sources, the author uncovers a previously hidden geography of violence and reveals how the optimistic story of a post-civil rights United States is nothing but a myth. This book is a powerful corrective to the widely held belief in progress towards greater inclusiveness and equality, and a warning that unless we fundamentally change our approach to systemic racism, rebellions will continue in the future.
