Neoliberalism is the greatest political sleight of our time. Knocking the Hustle makes it plain. Drawing from political economy and personal crisis, Spence diagnoses the economic pains and existential threats neoliberalism poses for Black lives (and all others) in urban America. Why? To help us convert truth to power to knock neoliberalism off its pedestal. ~Michael Leo Owens, Emory University, author of God and Government in the Ghetto: The Politics of Church-State Collaboration in Black America

In this provocative study, Lester Spence opens the conversation about how black politics and the black community have been affected by the market-driven logic of neoliberalism.
