Timely and important is this revision of the 1943 edition on the matter of minorities in the United States. A long introduction asks the question -- how far have we gone since 1943? There have been substantial gains, as in the case of the Negroes, but new crises are arising in the field of race relations. Additional material has been added treating the status of Orientale, Hawaiians, Filipinos and Jewish DP's. A penetrating analysis of a social problem and a comment on our democracy which every young person, whether of a majority or minority group, will want to read and discuss.
