"From plantation rebellion and Indigenous land theft to prison labour's super-exploitation, Walcott examines the relationship between policing and property. That a man can lose his life for passing a fake $20 bill, when we know that our economies are flush with fake money, says something damning about the ways in which we’ve organized society. At the nexus of the current discourse on policing and violence is the unavoidable fact that criminal codes value property more than human life, and thus substantive change isn’t possible until we rethink the very idea of private property itself."--Provided by publisher.

This is going to be interesting. I watched Judy Trinh's interview with Prof. Walcott via WritersFest and OPL and was by turns intrigued and disturbed. Quite possibly because Prof. Walcott has a case that we dare not ignore.
