From the Publisher"Andrews' aim is to paint an intellectually defensible and decidedly anti-conservative picture of the complicated tie between race and economic wellbeing."
"Fiery, passionate, and provocative, but also unflinchingly rigorous in its argument. It is rare for an economist to write with such fire bolstered by such a commitment to logical reasoning."
-William A. Darity Jr.
"Deserves the close attention of both academic experts and the lay public alike. Marcellus Andrews's rare and wonderful achievement is to combine the compassion and intensity of the engaged social critic with the analytical detachment and discipline of the social scientist. His argument—for which the stake is nothing less than the soul of our nation—will unsettle the reader, and that is exactly as it should be."
-Glenn C. Loury,Boston University
"Marcellus Andrews has written a fascinating and theoretically grounded account of the relationship between America's market economy and the prospects faced by African Americans."
-The Journal of Economic Issues
"Andrews does a superb job in offering solutions to familiar problems for African Americans. Complete with charts, graphs, facts and figures, the author provides readers with a vivid display of how the scales of equality, wealth and power are tipped against people of color."
