New York Times Bestseller New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice "An essential and groundbreaking text in the effort to understand how American criminal justice went so badly awry." —Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of Between the World and Me In A Colony in a Nation, New York Times best-selling author and Emmy Award–winning news anchor Chris Hayes upends the national conversation on policing and democracy. Drawing on wide-ranging historical, social, and political analysis, as well as deeply personal experiences with law enforcement, Hayes contends that our country has fractured in two: the Colony and the Nation. In the Nation, the law is venerated. In the Colony, fear and order undermine civil rights. With great empathy, Hayes seeks to understand this systemic divide, examining its ties to racial inequality, the omnipresent threat of guns, and the dangerous and unfortunate results of choices made by fear.

"In his introduction to A Colony of the World, Eugene McCarthy asserts that classical, historical colonialism is marked by distinctive political, military, economic, demographic and cultural characteristics. Politically and militarily, a colony is usually dependent to some degree upon the directions of its controlling country. Economically and culturally, colonial status is evident in loss of control over borders, religion and language." "Major investment in a colony is from outside, with control held by the investing powers. A colony is usually a supplier of raw materials and a purchaser of manufactured goods. Its economy and financial institutions operate within the monetary system of the mother country, controlling nations or institutions." "In A Colony of the World, Eugene McCarthy asserts that the United States is now in a colonial, or neocolonial, relationship to a combination of outside and inside forces which impose a colonial status on the country." "In 1948, Eugene McCarthy won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota; from 1958 through 1970, he served two terms in the U.S. Senate. His opposition to the war in Vietnam incited him to challenge Lyndon Johnson for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1968, and he ran for president as an independent in 1976." "Since retiring from the Senate, McCarthy has taught university courses in politics, literature and history. His articles have appeared in major publications and he has written books on a variety of topics. His most recent book is Required Reading: A Decade of Political Wit and Wisdom."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Edwards y el Gran Despertar Según una tradición, no estaba programado que Edwards predicara en la capilla de Enfield el 8 de Julio [1741], pero lo hizo en sustitución de otro predicador. Aparentemente, el Gran Despertar no había llegado aún al distrito y reinaba allí una total indiferencia de que sucediera o no, tanto que cristianos de distritos vecinos habían dedicado casi toda la noche anterior a la oración, no fuera que “mientras las lluvias divinas sucedían todo alrededor”, no las hubiera en Enfield. Edwards tomó como su texto Deuteronomio 32:35: “A su tiempo su pie resbalará”, repitiendo un sermón que había predicado en su propia iglesia poco antes sobre el tema: “Pecadores en manos de un Dios airado”. [Eleazer] Wheelock reportó a [Benjamín] Trumbull cómo los presentes, que había caracterizado como “indiferente y presumida”, tanto habían cambiado antes de finalizado el sermón que se habían “humillado con una convicción tremenda de su pecado y peligro”. –Iain Murray, Jonathan Edwards: A New Biography (Edinburgo, Banner of Truth, 1987), 168. La predicación por medio de la cual el espíritu de estupor fue abatido en la década de 1730, era escrutadora y convincente. Se estaba levantando un grupo de hombres para quienes la gravedad del pecado, la posibilidad de una profesión falsa de fe en Cristo y la indiferencia de un mundo perdido les era una carga apremiante. Detrás de sus declaraciones públicas estaba su visión de Dios y de la eternidad. Sus valles de humillación personal se habían convertido en valles de visión y, como dijera alguien que siguió en los pasos de Edwards siglos después: “Cuando los pastores captan una vista del valle de visión, y del abismo sin fondo en el cual cada hueso se va hundiendo, sienten que es importante advertir y alarmar a los pecadores, y solo entonces predican para muerte, predican para la eternidad, predican para el tribunal de Dios, predican para el cielo y predican también para el infierno”.—Ibid, 133.
