The forty-three chapters in African Americans in the U.S. Economy focus on various aspects of the economic status of African Americans, past and present. Taken together, these essays present two related themes: first, when it comes to economics, race matters; second, racial economic discrimination and inequality persist despite the optimistic predictions of standard economic analysis that racial discrimination cannot thrive in a free-market economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
African Americans in the U.S. Economy is an invaluable collection of essays for high school teachers, college professors, politicians, activists, and all people interested in the struggle for racial justice in the United States. The editors are to be congratulated for assembling an outstanding volume covering a very wide range of historical, theoretical, empirical, and policy issues relevant to the economic status of African Americans. * The Review Of Black Political Economy *
This book has a progressive perspective....could serve as a supplementary text for gender or labor courses. It brings a well-reasoned black perspective and explanation for issues that arise in growth, labor, public finance, and theory courses....insights are gained from a careful reading of this book. It is a welcome addition to the literature on race and the United States economy. * Eastern Economic Journal *
Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
