When we think of foster care in the U.S., we hope to see it as a system that is in place to protect the safety of at-risk children who are in abusive homes, providing a way out. However, according to Dr. Dorothy E. Roberts, the George A. Weiss University Professor of Law and Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania, this is sadly, disturbingly not the case when it comes to Black households. Statistics show that 1 in 10 Black children will be removed from their homes at least once before they reach 18 years of age. Is this the families' fault or is this indicative of a larger imprint of white supremacy inherent in our social services? In this episode of Left of Black, Dr. Roberts discusses her new book, 'Torn Apart: How the Child Welfare System Destroys Black Families--and How Abolition Can Build a Safer World,' published by Basic Books.
Historians often point to the similarities between and America. Both are republics. One fell and the other appears to be on its way. How much did partisan politics impact the demise of the ? Josiah Osgood, historian and author of “Uncommon Wrath: How Caesar and Cato’s Deadly Rivalry Destroyed the Roman Republic,” joins the podcast to discuss how two great and influential politicians ruined a really good thing.

"When we talk about trans history, what are we even talking about?
This book is about the answer to that question.
Ask a trans person today what the adjective 'trans' refers to and, while the nuances will differ, the most common definition you'll get is 'anyone who doesn't identify with the gender they were assigned at birth'. It's important to us to put it in these terms. Talking about being trans as an identity, rather than an action, helps us understand transness as relating to 'who you are', not 'what you do' – a crucial step in undermining the argument that transitioning means adhering to gender stereotypes. It makes space for people who can't, or don't want to, transition socially or medically. And talking about moving 'away from' gender we were assigned at birth, rather than from male to female or vice versa, helps our definition to be clearly inclusive of non-binary people: people like me, who don't identify as male or female all of the time."

Warehouse workers pack boxes while a virtual dragon races across their screen. If they beat their colleagues, they get an award. If not, they can be fired. Uber presents exhausted drivers with challenges to keep them driving. China scores its citizens so they behave well, and games with in-app purchases use achievements to empty your wallet.

Points, badges, and leaderboards are creeping into every aspect of modern life. In YOU'VE BEEN PLAYED: How Corporations, Governments, and Schools Use Games to Control Us All (Basic Books), game designer Adrian Hon delivers a blistering takedown of how corporations, schools, and governments use games and gamification as tools for profit and coercion. These are games that we often have no choice but to play, where losing has heavy penalties. YOU'VE BEEN PLAYED is a scathing indictment of a tech-driven world that wants to convince us that misery is fun, and a call to arms for anyone who hopes to preserve their dignity and autonomy.

Don’t miss Jacob Soll's latest piece in Project Syndicate!

His new book, FREE MARKET, is also out from Basic Books.

Transitions to paperback don't get the notice they used to. Think of how "now on dvd!" means nothing these days. E-books have robbed the paperback of its runway moment. Well, time to herald one worthy title, anyway. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, just before his death in 2020, turned in two monumental life-capping achievements, one a great book, Morality: Restoring the Common Good in Divided Times. His other achievement was a new translation of the Tanakh, the Hebrew scriptures, which I also carry. Try Sacks on morality - he is conversational, unpretentious, bookish, a fine storyteller, warmly sincere. "A free society is a moral achievement." Now in paperback from Basic Books. In stock.
Before 1870, humanity lived in dire poverty, with a slow crawl of invention offset by a growing population. Then came a great shift: invention sprinted forward, doubling our technological capabilities each generation and utterly transforming the economy again and again. Our ancestors would have presumed we would have used such powers to build utopia. But it was not so. When 1870-2010 ended, the world instead saw global warming; economic depression, uncertainty, and inequality; and broad rejection of the status quo.

Brad DeLong's SLOUCHING TOWARDS UTOPIA: An Economic History of the Twentieth Century (Basic Books) tells the story of how this unprecedented explosion of material wealth occurred, how it transformed the globe--and why it failed to deliver us to utopia. Of remarkable breadth and ambition, it uncovers the last century to have been less a march of progress than a slouch in the right direction. AUTHOR-INTERVIEW PODCAST LINK 👇
