This is a major work and contribution to literature linking race, class and religion in America. I am aware of no other author who has so clearly argued the psychological foundation of racism in America, both its subtle and violent forms, and who has been able to make historical links as well. The breadth of her reading and integration is astonishing. Again this is a must read for all who are seriously interested in understanding these issues.
