Murder Incorporated

This event is co-sponsored by The Rosenberg Fund for Children.

The prevailing myth is that America's prized possessions and greatest exports are democracy and the dream of freedom. The naked truth, according to Abu-Jamal and Vittoria, is that the American dream is illusory and America's greatest export is in fact murder—and that along the way to the kill, America thieves, suppresses, and tyrannizes. This book strives to set the record straight, to educate, to enlighten and to enliven the people against the corruptions of empire—corruptions that stretch from Columbus's first steps on Hispaniola through yesterday's murderous drone attack. More than a history book, this is a lively, irreverent, and spirited alternative to the orthodoxy of American exceptionalism.

About the series:

Murder Incorporated—Book One: Dreaming of Empire (released 2018), exposes the origins of the American empire—one born in the blood, tears, and sorrows of genocide, slavery, and mass death. Book One is a vast panorama of how imperial America came to be, and how it grew into the Leviathan that continues to torment today.

Murder Incorporated—Book Two: America’s Favorite Pastime (released 2019), chronicles the sinister bloody heart of American power, which remains murderous and perpetually at war. 

Murder Incorporated—Book Three: Perfecting Tyranny (release date TBD), delves into the murky and dangerous waters of mass surveillance and an empire gone mad.
