Returning to his innovative work of twenty-five years ago, Robert Hill once more offers an incisive analysis of five key cultural strengths of African-American families. With compassion and eloquence, he argues that these existing strengths provide a solid foundation upon which to develop the kind of public policies and self-help initiatives that will truly promote the interests, not only of the African American community, but of our diverse nation as a whole.

MEDIA REVIEWS
While many continue to dismiss Hill's contributions, his argument is a powerful one which has important implications for social work and social policy. Hill's book shows how proper understanding of the strengths of the African American community can inform policy makers. * Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare *
Teachers, social workers, counselors, community activists, policy makers, and the general reader will find this a most useful, authoritative, and readable exposition...I can hardly wait to use it in my classes, lectures, seminars, and conversations with friends and strangers alike. * Andrew Billingsley, (From The Foreword) *
