A Colony in a Nation is a highly original analysis of America’s arbitrary and erratic criminal justice system. Indeed, by Hayes's lights, the system is not erratic at all—it treats one group of Americans as citizens, and another as the colonized.  This is an essential and ground-breaking text in the effort to understand how American criminal justice went so badly awry.” - Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of Between the World and Me
