✏Department of Justice Notorious Resorts Book Summary : Imagine going about your business and work and suddenly being arrested. That’s just what happened to the author of this tell-all book. Unfortunately, “Innocent until proven guilty” was not his experience with the American legal system. Instead, he was forced to take a plea bargain he did not want and received a harsh sentence in return. His book JusXtice detailed the U.S. Department of Justice (court system) and the Bureau of Prisons and the nasty things they do. His latest book, DOJ’s Notorious Resorts, is the second in a series of three books about his experiences with the US Justice Department. It explores what happened to the author in prison and its effects once he got out, a broken man and shell of his former self. From his first days in federal prison, to the importance of respect, descriptions of what passes for food, gangs, death, and a system that seems hopelessly broken, the author details his four years within a federal prison’s walls. This no-holds-barred book serves as an exposé of what can happen when justice is not only blind but heartless. The author wrote it as a guide––and cautionary tale––for anyone who has been mistreated, abused, lied to, or forced to take a plea bargain.

✏Capitalism and Slavery Book Summary : Slavery helped finance the Industrial Revolution in England. Plantation owners, shipbuilders, and merchants connected with the slave trade accumulated vast fortunes that established banks and heavy industry in Europe and expanded the reach of capitalism worldwide. Eric Williams advanced these powerful ideas in Capitalism and Slavery, published in 1944. Years ahead of its time, his profound critique became the foundation for studies of imperialism and economic development. Binding an economic view of history with strong moral argument, Williams's study of the role of slavery in financing the Industrial Revolution refuted traditional ideas of economic and moral progress and firmly established the centrality of the African slave trade in European economic development. He also showed that mature industrial capitalism in turn helped destroy the slave system. Establishing the exploitation of commercial capitalism and its link to racial attitudes, Williams employed a historicist vision that set the tone for future studies. In a new introduction, Colin Palmer assesses the lasting impact of Williams's groundbreaking work and analyzes the heated scholarly debates it generated when it first appeared.

And what about cases where it is far from clear that redemption will improve the material condition or increase the real freedom, of a slave?
