The Scar of Raceby Paul M Sniderman
Synopses & Reviews
What, precisely, is the clash over race in the 1990s, and does it support the charge of a "new racism"? Here is a brilliant articulation of what has happened, of how racial issues have becomeentangled with politics--the process of negotiating who gets what through government action. We now have to understand and cope with a "politics of race."
Book News Annotation:
Sniderman (political science, Stanford U.) and Piazza (Survey Research Center, UC Berkeley) discuss the results of five surveys they conducted and draw conclusions on American racial and racist attitudes and politics. The questions and answers of today are not the same, nor so clear, as they were in the 1960s. A note of hope: attitudes might not be as fixed as has been presumed in the past.
