Usual Cruelty: The Complicity of Lawyers in the Criminal Injustice System

From an award-winning civil rights lawyer, a profound challenge to our society’s normalization of the caging of human beings, and the role of the legal profession in perpetuating it.

Note: Every day, half a million people are jailed merely because they can’t afford to pay bail. Alec Karakatsanis, an award-winning civil rights lawyer known for, uses USUAL CRUELTY to challenge American society’s normalization of this common practice. The New Yorker calls this work “Passionately argued. . . . Karakatsanis sets out the moral and political philosophy that drives his work—that criminal law, and the manner in which it is selectively enforced, is a reflection of ‘power, racial bias, and economic self-interest.’”–Molly Miller
