In this powerful new work, Marable, Ness, and Wilson maintain that contrary to the popular hubris about equality churned out by the capitalist class, race is entrenched and more divisive than any time since the Civil Rights Movement. Race and Labor Matters in the New U.S. Economy asserts that all advances in American race relations have only evolved through conflict and collective struggle. The foundation of the class divide in the United States remains, while racial and ethnic segregation, privilege, and domination, and the institution of neoliberalism have become a detriment to all workers.remains, while racial and ethnic segregation, privilege and domination, and the institution of neoliberal policies are a detriment to all workers.

As the class divide grows precipitously in the United States, far too little attention is drawn to the racial divide. Race and Labor Matters in the United States is a sobering book revealing that the color line remains bound with the growing poverty and declining wages for all workers. This book is a seminal work and should be required reading for students of race relations and political economy in America. -- David Addams, American Civil Liberties Union, Director of Diversity
Editors Marable, Ness and Wilson have produced an informative, timely overview of the enduring problems of race in the US. Recommended. * CHOICE *
...Race and Labor Matters in the New U.S. Economy provides excellent advice to the labor movement and unions on improving their standing within the American society of the new millenium. -- Lopez Matthews, 2007 * The Journal of African American History *
Demographic change in the U.S. is engendering a diverse labor force starkly separated along the lines of race and ethnicity. This comprehensive book by leading historians, political economists, labor experts, and sociologists, challenges the dominant perspective of a harmonious nation by recovering race from our historical collective consciousness. Marable, Ness, and Wilson are at the cutting-edge of the debate on race and class. Race and Labor in the United States is essential reading for all interested in the latest thinking by scholars and activists around the issues of race and labor. -- Juan Gonzalez, President (emeritus) of the National Association of Hispanic Journalist and host of Democracy Now
