Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Racism in the United States is institutionalized and has been since the early days of the republic; eliminating racism would produce a different society than we now know. Race and Ideology reveals how various strands of racial thinking and behavior are crucial for maintaining the unequal distribution of wealth that is more pronounced in the U.S. than in any other advanced industrial country. Though primarily concerned with the U.S., this collection contains chapters on other societies in order to highlight commonalties and the global nature of the race/color problem.
