            El Jefe: The Stalking of Chapo Guzman
             

            El Jefe: The Stalking of Chapo Guzman (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            As portrayed in the hit Netflix series Narcos, Guzman was the most legendary and notorious of the deadly Mexican cartel leaders. As leader of the deadly Sinaloa drug cartel, he was one of the most dangerous men in the world. His nickname El Chapo translates as 'shorty', but there... was no question about his power as El Jefe, 'The Boss'. His fearless climb to power, his brutality, his charm, his taste for luxury, his penchant for disguise, his multiple dramatic prison escapes, his unlikely encounters with Sean Penn-all of these burnished the image of the world's most famous outlaw. It's not surprising that his story inspired the writers of a top-rating drama. El Chapo's Robin Hood-like appearances at rural Mexican restaurants to the unlikely role a twenty-four year old 'IT guy' played in his downfall - make for a surprising, cinematic story. He was finally captured by US and Mexican law enforcement in a daring operation years in the making. From El Chapo's humble origins to his conviction in a Brooklyn courthouse, this is the definitive story of his life by the New York Times criminal justice reporter Alan Feuer's whose gripping coverage of his trial went viral. There will be other 'El Chapo' narratives, but author Alan Feuer is in a unique position. Feuer's mastery of the complex facts of the case, his unparalleled access to confidential sources in law enforcement in both the US and Mexico, and his powerful understanding of disturbing larger themes-what this one man's life says about drugs, walls, class and money -will ensure that this is the one book to read about 'El Chapo'.

            The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colourblindness

            Once in a great while a book comes along that radically changes our understanding of a crucial political issue and helps to fuel a social movement. The New Jim Crow is such a book. Lawyer and activist Michelle Alexander offers a stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like sys...tem in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status, denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights movement. Challenging the notion that the election of Barack Obama signalled a new era of colourblindness in the United States, The New Jim Crow reveals how racial discrimination was not ended but merely redesigned. By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of colour, the American criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control, relegating millions to a permanent second-class status even as it formally adheres to the principle of colourblindness. A searing call to action for everyone concerned with social justice, The New Jim Crow is one of the most important books about race in the 21st century.
