3 Stars for THE SECOND

Carol Anderson’s THE SECOND: Race and Guns in a Fatally Unequal America has received THREE starred reviews!

“In her passion and precision, Anderson presents a uniquely positioned, persuasive, and unflinching look at yet another form of deadly systemic racism in American society that has stoked the centuries-long crimes of insecurity, inequality, and injustice. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Best-selling Anderson’s works are key to public debates about human rights and systemic racism, and gun rights is a particularly urgent subject.”–Booklist, starred review

An urgent, novel interpretation of a foundational freedom that, the author makes clear, is a freedom only for some.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“In this latest work, Anderson (WHITE RAGE) argues that the rights afforded under the Second Amendment represent a double standard and have never fully applied to Black Americans… An important but too-compact analysis that might leave readers wishing for more. Like Anderson’s previous works, this is essential for everyone interested in U.S. history.”–Library Journal, starred review
