Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction Longlisted for the National Book Award One of the New York Times Book Review's 10 Best Books of 2017 Former public defender James Forman, Jr. is a leading critic of mass incarceration and its disproportionate impact on people of colour. In Locking Up Our Own, he seeks to understand the war on crime that began in the 1970s and why it was supported by many African American leaders in the nation's urban centres. Forman shows us that the first substantial cohort of black mayors, judges and police chiefs took office amid a surge in crime and drug addiction. Many prominent black officials, including Washington, DC mayor Marion Barry and federal prosecutor Eric Holder, feared that the gains of the civil rights movement were being undermined by lawlessness - and thus embraced tough-on-crime measures, including longer sentences and aggressive police tactics. In the face of skyrocketing murder rates and the proliferation of open-air drug markets, they believed they had no choice. But the policies they adopted would have devastating consequences for residents of poor black neighbourhoods. A former public defender, Forman tells riveting stories of politicians, community activists, police officers, defendants and crime victims. He writes with compassion about individuals trapped in terrible dilemmas - from the men and women he represented in court to officials struggling to respond to a public safety emergency. Locking Up Our Own enriches our understanding of why American society became so punitive and offers important lessons to anyone concerned about the future of race and the criminal justice system.

In the seaside town of Lighthouse Cove in northern California, everyone knows the best man for the job is actually a woman—contractor Shannon Hammer. But while her home-renovation and repair business is booming, her love life needs work. On a blind date with real estate agent Jerry Saxton, Shannon has to whip out a pair of pliers to keep Jerry from getting too hands on. She's happy to put her rotten date behind her, but when Jerry’s found dead in a run-down Victorian home that she’s been hired to restore, the town’s attractive new police chief suspects that her threats may have laid the foundation for murder. Determined to clear her name, Shannon conducts her own investigation—with the help of her four best friends, her eccentric father, a nosy neighbor or two, and a handsome crime writer who’s just moved to town.

When one thinks of classic fairy tales and folklore, it's usually the enchanted forests of Europe that spring to mind. But in Charles M. Skinner's Myths and Legends of Our Own Land, the author proves that scrappy upstart America is an equally rich source of myths and legends. This engaging volume brings together dozens of old favorites and more obscure tales, as well.

The number of French Jews killed during the Holocaust has been massively underestimated. Claire Zalc explains why: the Vichy regime terminated the legal standing of thousands of naturalized Jewish citizens, erasing them from the record. Their official disappearance is a lesson about the precariousness of naturalized status, then and now.

Our Own Kind is a World War II novel without the combat, a novel about the America the soldiers left behind. Anne Weiss depicts here in families of different social and income levels the effects of the war in daily experience as well as on the greater occasions of weddings and funerals. Hers is an Our Town view of an upstate New York town called Westerveldt, where the importance of the characters behavior and conversation is historically clear to us while dimly perceptible to them. They feel helplessly caught up in events they cant control. The Osterhoudts and Van Leuvens, the old established families, as well as the Sloanes and Mancusos in trade and contract work, see their sons dying overseas, their daughters marrying out of their own class, the war affecting their customs and privileges, all sorts of changes taking place in a world they thought they knew. As the author makes clear, this uncertainty and threat to their own kind affects everyone in the novel of every class and age. In a style of subtle understatement Anne Weiss shows her two main characters, Emily Osterhoudt, home from college, and Mary D. Van Leuven, still in high school, as shrewd inside observers forcing the action while resisting social pressure if not rebelling against circumstance and upbringing. Our Own Kind is a many-sided moving account of a World War II America that prefigures something of our more recent homeland anxieties.

For four crucial months in 1861, delegates from all over the South met in Montgomery, Alabama, to establish a new nation. Davis (Jefferson Davis: The Man and the Hour, LJ 11/15/91) tells their story in this new work, another example of Davis's fine storytelling skill and an indispensable guide to understanding the formation of the Confederate government. Among the issues Davis examines are revising the Constitution to meet Southern needs, banning the importation of slaves, and determining whether the convention could be considered a congress. Also revealed are the many participating personalities, their ambitions and egos, politicking and lobbying for the presidency of the new nation, and the nature of the city of Montgomery itself.
