Nigger by Randall Kennedy

Book Description

The explosive and controversial best-seller that rocked the U.S. is now available in the U.K. Here, distinguished legal scholar Randall Kennedy takes on American attitudes, culture and law, asking: Should the black community be able to use nigger' in ways forbidden to others? Should its use be seen as an act of violence, cost people their jobs, and books their place on library shelves? In exploring these questions, Kennedy addresses the racism embedded in our society. 'One of the most talked about books of the year' - Boston Globe 'Provocative, engaging and informative' - NY Times'
