Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A critical study of race relations in the US uniquely voicing both white and black perspectives and seeking a coherent theory of why Americans think the way they do. Kinder (political science and psychology, U. of Michigan) and Sanders (political science, U. of Chicago) present evidence that racial resentment fuels white opinion toward political issues such as welfare, and that much of this fire is fanned by self-interest, group identity, and ideological principles. In conclusion, they discuss how race functions in the presidential election process, and the role political elites play in shaping opinion. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Sandburg was a superb poet. he speaks in such a raw voice, that the poems cannot help but to reach out and touch you, whether he writes about love, injustice, protest, war, chicago or any other subject.
