The Scar of Race

The Scar of Race Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 become entangled with politics--the process of negotiating who gets what through government action. We now have to understand and cope with a "politics of race."
