1. In his book, Katrina’s Legacy, Eric Mann issues a call for a third reconstruction. Using his book as your primary (though not necessarily exclusive) guide, provide an analytic overview of the primary dimensions of his scholarly, political, and theoretical project. Some questions you may want to consider would include: What does he mean by this? What are the critical aspects of his call?
