bookshelves: non-fiction, politics, social-justice
Read from March 27 to April 09, 2012

An important topic and an important read, albeit a difficult one-- partly because of the subject matter and partly because Alexander's writing is not always the most polished. I personally would have appreciated more in-text explanations of studies and more in-depth breakdowns of statistics rather than brief mentions of them, but her arguments are clear and compelling nonetheless.
