Description
Meet Mitchell "Sam" Brewer. Young. African-American. An ex-Marine with charm and intelligence. Highly valued by his employers in his state job. Yet Sam repeatedly gets into trouble - much of it the kind that lands him in hospitals and police stations. George Gilder, one of the most important sociopolitical authors of our time, brings us a life in which the ultimate trap is not racism, but the very system that's meant to help. Not since Claude Brown's "Manchild in the Promised Land" has there been such a forthright, unvarnished, and humanizing portrait of life and struggle for young African-American men in the inner city.

From the author's new introduction decrying the lack of vision in welfare reform to the chilling postscript on the story's protagonist, "Visible Man" rings even more disturbingly true today than when it was first published.
