Summary
"In this acclaimed study, Bernard Boxill examines the works of modern theorists James Coleman, Robert Nozick, Ernest Van den Haag, Milton Friedman, William Julius Wilson, and Ronald Dworkin, among others, and classicial thinkers such as Karl Marx, John Stuart Mill, and W.E.B. Dubois, to delineate the principle arguments for and against the major racial issues of our time. The revised edition includes a major new chapter, The Surrender to Injustice, which critically examines the recent challenges to traditional analyses of the effects of racism by William Julius Wilson, Glenn Loury, and Shelby Steele."--Back cover
