Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1993 on the one-year anniversary of the L.A. riots, Race Matters has since become an American classic. Beacon Press is proud to present this hardcover edition with a new introduction by Cornel West. The issues that it addresses are as controversial and urgent as before, and West's insights remain fresh, exciting, and timely. Now more than ever, Race Matters is a book for all Americans--one that will help us build a genuine multiracial democracy.

Book News Annotation:

Accessible, pointed essays on race in America by esteemed African- American intellectual West--professor of religion and director of Princeton's Afro-American Studies program. Most have been previously published in earlier versions.
