Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conservatism is faltering; liberalism is poised for a renewal. But liberals themselves are still held in thrall by the contradictions and confusions of race. Worse still, many of the best-intentioned liberal policies have promoted not a colorblind society but a country seething with racial resentments. With uncompromising clarity, Jim Sleeper discusses what liberals need to do to return their political movement to the vital center.

Along the way, Sleeper punctures liberal pieties to reveal politicans and journalists still stymied by race, impotent in the face of conservative racism, and manacled to a guilt that neither advances social justice nor supports the millions of persons of all colors who are struggling to fashion a common American identity. Sleeper challenges us to transcend race, to reject the foolish policies and attitudes that have only reinforced racial division, and to weave a social fabric sturdy enough to sustain the values upon which this country was founded.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [183]-185) and index.
