"An intense and compact resource for understanding how the political economy of racism evolved in the United States."--Science & Society
Racism is about more than individual prejudice. And it is hardly the relic of a past era. This scholarly, readable, and provocative book shows how the persistence of racism in America relies on the changing interests of those who hold the real power in society and use every possible means to hold onto it.
