"A standout, filled with keen and novel solutions to racial conflict. A thoughtful and inspiring book."-- Dr. Alvin F. Poussaint, Harvard Medical School"Cose argues convincingly that racism persists in America today for the very reason that too many Americans fail to acknowledge it and to actively work to break down the artificial boundaries that divide one human from another. In so doing, Cose...moves us one step closer to its end."-- Senator Bill Bradley"A good primer for anyone who wants to see what has been going on with race relations through the eyes of a journalist who keeps a microscope on the subject."-- Juan Williams, "Los Angeles Times""Accurately assesses the contradictory nature of U.S. race relations: they often get better and worse at the same time."-- R. Z. Sheppard, "Time""A book this country desperately needs."-- "New York Times Book Review"
