"An Allen Lane book"--Back cover
Published outside the British Isles
In over a year of on-the-ground reportage, 'Washington Post' writer Wesley Lowery travelled across the US to uncover life inside the most heavily policed, if otherwise neglected, corners of America today. In an effort to grasp the scale of the response to Michael Brown's death and understand the magnitude of the problem police violence represents, Lowery conducted interviews with the families of victims of police brutality, as well as with local activists working to stop it. Lowery investigates the effect of decades of racially biased policing n segregated neighbourhoods with failing schools, constant discrimination, crumbling infrastructure and too few jobs. Offering a historically informed look at the standoff between the police and those they are sworn to protect, 'They Can't Kill Us All' demonstrates that civil unrest is just one tool of resistance in the broader struggle for justice.
