Overview

This collective portrait documents the disproportionate vulnerability of African Americans to the ongoing transformations of the U.S. economy from industrial to service areas as the twenty-first century approaches. The chapters have been previously published in The Review of Black Political Economy between 1991 and 1996. This volume represents one of the best sources of up-to-date perspectives on the circumstances facing African Americans in post-industrial labor markets.

African Americans and Post-Industrial Labor Markets is divided into seven sections: "The Intersection of Race, Power, Culture, and Economic Discrimination," "Black-White Wage Differentials," "Occupational Crowding," "Black Women in the Labor Market," "Structural Unemployment and Job Displacement," "Sectoral Analyses," and "Strategies to Increase Employment." The authors discuss such topics as: the impact of the general status of race relations on labor markets; increasing access to higher-paying occupations; the relationship between occupational segregation and local labor market dynamics; and the earnings of black women compared to white women and black and white men.

The chapters are connected by a common theme: black employment is highly sensitive to changes in both aggregate and local economic conditions. As a result, policy changes designed to promote macro-level economic stabilization could well have the unintended effect of further increasing job instability among blacks. African Americans and Post-Industrial Labor Markets is a momentous compendium and should be read by economists, African American studies scholars, sociologists, and professionals in the business world.
