ACCLAIM FOR THE SECOND EDITION AUGMENTED:
ANGELA Y. DAVIS "An essential resource when it was first published in 1978, Lennox Hinds’ new edition of Illusions of Justice reminds us of the importance of combining local and international legal resistance with ongoing movement organizing. Progressive legal workers, scholars and activists alike will appreciate the valuable historical context offered by this text for those of us involved in contemporary battles against racist and heteropatriarchal state violence.”
~ Angela Y. Davis, Distinguished Professor Emerita, History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Cruz
BERNARD K. FREAMON ". . . a superb resource for all scholars, practitioners and activists interested in civil and human rights in America and throughout the world. Thoroughly researched and persuasively argued."
~ Bernard K. Freamon, Professor of Law Emeritus, Seton Hall Law School
MICHAEL WELCH "Illusions of Justice remains an important resource for scholars, researchers and lawyers – as well as activists. Likewise, it continues to provide substantial guidance for the civil rights and human rights movements . . . I plan to consult the work while writing my own book on political imprisonment. Moreover, the added chapters (i.e., Death Penalty, Abuse of Power by Police) further bolster the vast volume of cases."
~ Michael Welch, Ph.D., Professor, Criminal Justice. Rutgers University, USA
