The Unusual Fund for Usual Cruelty

Monday, December 9, 2019

The New Press is proud to support an innovative book donation concept, the brainchild of Alec Karakatsanis, author of Usual Cruelty: The Complicity of Lawyers in the Criminal Injustice System.

The Unusual Fund will pay for copies of Usual Cruelty to be given free to students (high school, college, law school) in any class in which a teacher or professor assigns it. And, for every free book that is provided to a student, a matching copy will be sent to someone incarcerated in a prison or jail.

We hope you will help support this important initiative and make a donation to the Fund today!
