KIRKUS REVIEW

A practical investigation based on first hand research as well as extensive reports by sociologists, agencies, etc.,- this is concerned with the cleavages between groups of different derivations, examines the nature and extent of prejudice within the United States. This is an analysis of inter-group relations which are not political, economic or religious as much as racial and ethnic. The caste lines of demarcation- and the counter-balances; the motivation, which is largely social, and the application, in the denial of equal access to public opportunity. What the government can or cannot, should or should not, do, in administering anti-discrimination measures; what education can accomplish; the role of organizations; the strategies employed, etc.... A studied consideration of prejudice, which is both theoretical and actual, for a professional market.
