KIRKUS REVIEW

A condensed version of the most authoritative study of the Negro, Gunnar Myrdal's American Dilemma, this preserves the point of view and body of the facts of the original, omitting detail and some of the statistical, supporting evidence. Consequently, this abridgement of more than 1000 pages and 500 pages of appendices and footnotes to some 300 pages makes this study more available to a general audience. The coverage includes an analysis of the ""Negro problem""; racial beliefs (the ""Negro race"" is a social not a biological concept); population and migration; economic history and job discrimination; housing, education; politics; Negro organizations and protest institutions; etc., etc., with a concluding chapter, the author's on the Negro in the postwar world.
