What explains the continuing hardship of so many black Americans? A distinguished group of scholars analyzes the long, complex structural and environmental causes of discrimination and their effects on African-Americans. The authors examine the impact of poverty, poor health, poor schools, poor housing, poor neighborhoods, and few job opportunities-and demonstrate how multiple causes reinforce each other and condemn African-Americans to positions of inferiority and poverty. Some of the contributors examine policies designed to correct problems, while others look at the changing racial and ethnic composition in America and its implications for African-Americans, as other minorities surpass them in numbers and claim political, economic, and social attention. The late James Tobin has contributed a foreword to this important collection.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The strength of this volume is that a great many important issues are gathered in one place, and the essays bring the debate over race, poverty, and domestic policy to the very present. The volume will be useful not only to the general reader, but also to the experts in the field."-Joel Handler, author of The Poverty of Welfare Reform


"An extremely useful source of information and thinking about black poverty."-Frank D. Bean, University of California, Irvine
