Turning Back: The Retreat from Racial Justice in American Thought and Policyby Stephen Steinberg
iling attitudes on race and social justice, arguing that only the massive growth of grassroots protests in the 1960's freedom movement was able to push the country to a meaningful, albeit fleeting, response to racial inequality.
"[Steinberg] argues with angry prose and an impressive grasp of the facts about the long list of betrayals of the black people by scholars and activists who proclaim themselves to be the friends of African-Americans. . . . [Turning Back] is strong medicine." Robert F. Drinan, The Boston Globe
"A very important, rich and thoughtful book." Adolph Reed, Jr., The Nation
"One of the most important books on race and society to appear in the last decade." Michael Eric Dyson, author of I May Not Get There with You
