Description
Upending the national conversation on policing and democracy, the author contends that America has fractured in two: the Colony and the Nation. In the Nation, the law is venerated; in the Colony, fear trumps civil rights and aggressive policing resembles occupation. Drawing on historical research and social and political analysis, as well as personal experiences with law enforcement, he seeks to understand this systemic divide, examining its ties to continuing racial inequality, the omnipresent threat of guns and the dangerous results of choices made by fear.
