This new and completely revised edition is a study of the successes and failures of the collective efforts employed to assist black Americans to enter the professional mainstream. More important, Mainstreaming Outsiders is a guidebook to those institutions-academic, corporate, and government-that offer the best opportunities for black graduate (and undergraduate) students to continue their education and join the ranks of American professionals. As a tool for finding the right school for the aspiring black, this is a must book for high school, college, and university libraries. The fields of study selected for analysis include medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, engineering and architecture, law, social work, as well as doctoral degrees in the arts and humanities,the social sciences and the physical sciences.

I want to commend you on the publication of Mainstreaming Outsiders. It offers a timely treatment of an extremely important subject. I have had a number of opportunities to recommend it to my colleagues. -- Anne S. Priutt, associate dean, Ohio State University
The thoroughness of Blackwell's scholarship is a factor to be much appreciated. It is informative and should be welcomed for its factual data alone, but the book is analytical and interpretive in a manner that surely deserves praise. I would like his publishers to know how much I am impressed. -- Cameron Fincher, Director, Institute of Higher Education, University of Georgia
