KIRKUS REVIEW

A sociological and anthropological study of Chicago, the second largest Negro city in the country, and the impact on the Negro of industrialization, secularization urbanization and segregation, from the time the first slave that escaped to Chicago down to the present race crisis. This book does not attempt any blue print for solving the race question, but it does analyze the Negro-White relationship in Chicago, the effect of their separate, subordinated status on personalities, institutions, and the world they have built. Not written with quite the scientific approach of Myrdal, nor yet the light touch of Roi Ottley -- but strikes a sound note.
