Great, compelling read. I finished it in a single sitting. Davis spells out the historical nature of slavery, wage slavery and geographical containment and their growth into the disgusting system we have today, in which violation of drug laws serves as an excuse for the creation of enormous labor camps that profit large corporations. This book spends only nine pages on possible solutions to the problem; if you are looking for the answers, this book will not provide them. Still it's a great read.
