The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth GapTaibi

Matt Taibbi asked why does poverty rise, as crime goes down and the prison population doubles. He discovered the Divide, the seam in American life where troubling trends - wealth inequality and mass incarceration- meet. He contends that our basic rights are now determined by our wealth or by our poverty. Are the wealthy untouchable? The poor criminalized? A New York Times bestseller, Divide paints an alarming portrait of contemporary American life and provides a way forward against this crisis. He writes for Rolling Stone and recently launched a new digital magazine by First Look Media.
