Two Nations: Black and White, Separate, Hostile, Unequal

Two Nations: Black and White, Separate, Hostile, Unequal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why, despite continued efforts to increase understanding and expand opportunities, do black and white Americans still lead separate lives, continually marked by tension and hostility? In his much-lauded classic, newly updated to reflect the changing realities of race in our nation, Andrew Hacker explains the origins and meaning of racism and clarifies the conflicting theories of equality and inferiority. He paints a stark picture of racial inequality in America — focusing on family life, education, income, and employment — and explores the current controversies over politics, crime, and the causes of the gap between the races. Illuminating and oftentimes startling, Two Nations demonstrates how race has defined America's history and will continue to shape its future.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references and index.
