Another day in the death of America : a chronicle of ten short lives by Gary Younge( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On an average day in America, seven young people aged nineteen or under will be shot dead. In this book, Guardian journalist Gary Younge tells the stories of the lives lost during the course of a single day in the United States. It could have been any day, but Younge has chosen November 23, 2013. From Jaiden Dixon (9), shot point-blank by his mother's ex-boyfriend on his doorstep in Ohio, to Pedro Dado Cortez (16), shot by an enemy gang on a street corner in California, the narrative crisscrosses the country over a period of twenty-four hours to reveal the powerful human stories behind the statistics. Far from a dry account of gun policy in the United States or a polemic about the dangers of gun violence, the book is a chronicle of an ordinary but deadly day in American life, and a series of character portraits of young people taken from us far too soon and those they left behind. Whether it's a father's unspeakable grief over his son who was at the wrong place at the wrong time, a mentor who tries to channel his rage by organizing, or a friend and neighbor who finds strength in faith, the lives lost on that day and the lives left behind become, in Younge's hands, impossible to ignore, or to forget. What emerges in these pages is a portrait of youth, family, and the way that lives can be shattered in an instant on any day in America

"Praise for Gary Younge's Stranger in a Strange Land: Encounters in the Disunited States: "Abroad in America, Gary Younge is an acutely skeptical observer."--Jonathan Raban "Gary Younge is an excellent journalist-a critical writer at a critical time."-Andrea Levy "One of the tiny handful of contemporary journalists left who is consistently worth reading. A voice for our times." -Stuart Hall Praise for No Place Like Home: A Black Briton's Journey Through the American South: "Younge's book is a blend of travelogue, historical research, and social commentary leavened with the sharp eyes and tongue of an outsider examining the American racial milieu." -Booklist Praise for Who Are We-And Should it Matter: "Penetrating and provocative." -The Guardian It was a sweltering eighty-seven degrees when Martin Luther King took the stage at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963. He was the final speaker after a long day. The crowd, which numbered in the tens of thousands, had begun to leave. King took a deep breath and threw back his shoulders. "I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. "Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his powerful "I Have a Dream" speech on August 28, 1963. Fifty years later, The Speech endures as a defining moment in the Civil Rights movement. It continues to be heralded as a beacon in the ongoing struggle for racial equality. This gripping book unearths the fascinating chronicle behind The Speech and the revealing events surrounding the march on Washington. Gary Younge is an author, broadcaster, and award-winning columnist for the Guardian and the Nation. His books include Who are We--And Should it Matter In the 21st Century and No Place Like Home, shortlisted for the Guardian first book award."--
Who Are We-- And Should It Matter in the 21st Century? by Gary Younge( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As borders vanish, more people travel, cultures mingle, and communications across continents become easier, aren't relations between people supposed to be getting less fraught? Why then are people retreating into the refuges of religion, nationality, race, and region? In France the Roma are deported en masse, in Italy Prime Minister Berlusconi has called undocumented workers an 'army of evil' and in Oklahoma, where Muslims are only 0.2 percent of the population, 70 percent of Oklahomans voted to ban the introduction of Sharia Law ... Younge demonstrates that how we define ourselves deeply matters: identity often determines whom we elect to public office; informs the choices we make for safety and often figures prominently in the decision to go to war ... 'Who Are We?' shows how identity shapes our personal and political worlds ... Brilliantly observed, witty, and deeply impassioned, "Who Are We' urges us to halt this retreat, to search for common higher ground, or to be prepared to see a society more dangerously divided than ever ..."--Dust jacket flap

On an average day in America, seven young people aged nineteen or under will be shot dead. In Another Day in the Death of America, award-winning Guardian journalist Gary Younge tells the stories of the lives lost during the course of a single day in the United States. Far from a dry account of gun policy in the United States or a polemic about the dangers of gun violence, the book is a gripping chronicle of an ordinary but deadly day in American life, and a series of character portraits of young people taken from us far too soon and those they left behind.

What emerges in these pages is a searing portrait of youth, family, and the way that lives can be shattered in an instant on any day in America. A clear-eyed and iconoclastic approach to this contentious issue, this book helps answer the questions so many of us are grappling with, and makes it even harder to just look away
