Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works. In this episode, she talks with Heather Ann Thompson about her book Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy. As Bernard E. Harcourt, Professor of Law and Political Science at Columbia University notes, "Remarkable. Blood in the Water is a historical tour de force. It sheds new light on these most important historical events, events that in part triggered the wave of exponential prison growth today. For those of us who have been tracing the rise of mass incarceration in this country, Heather Ann Thompson's book is a must-read." http://www.elzabethkelleylaw.com.
