Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521624568, Hardcover)Darnell M. Hunt explores the relationship between social identity (race, class, gender, etc.), our perceptions of everyday reality and the O. J. Simpson double murder trial to ask: why was America so obsessed by this case? Why were so many people invested in particular outcomes? And what are we to make of the apparent racial divide in attitudes about the case captured by the opinion polls? O. J. Facts and Fictions tackles these questions and considers the implications for race relations in the United States at the dawn of the new millennium.

J. case, why so many people were interested in particular outcomes, and to examine the implications for race relations in the United States as the new century dawns.
