Overview

This text examines the social forces that influence Black responses to differential conditions in American society. It raises the issue of differential social status and its effect on whites who are similarly situated at the low end of the class spectrum. Chambers identifies the elements that contribute to the fluctuations in maintaining the status quo and analyzes the attempts made to control dissidence. The standard functional approach is taken so students can interpret the data within a traditional theoretical framework. Chambers' book is an excellent introductory work in criminology on America's most challenging issue, racism.
