    Brilliant book.   We   live in two worlds  . For us the affluent in the suburbs or in the gleaming skyscraper condos
    that now dot the urban landscape the ghetto is a place we see typically only on the evening news-
     the scene of a shooting or drug bust.  In film this same ghetto  is portrayed as exotic, foreign,
    inhabited by  vicious street gangs as in Tresspass or Welfare Queens as in ,Precious.   Our social policy
    reflects this view of the ghetto.   We no longer invest in social programs in the inner city schools. We have given
     upon them.   We invest instead waging a drug war in those ghettos.   The author shows that  hip-hop music far
    from  being part of the pathology is part  of  the cure. Beautifully written, makes you think or  rethink  ,
    hard to put down.   Run do not walk to order yours now.
