KIRKUS REVIEW

Robert Senser, an acute student of the nation's most serious domestic problem, has here provided men of good will with a deposition which goes to the core of the moral issues involved. Clearly and forcefully, he develops the case for interracial justice in one of the most readable books of its kind now available. The opening section consists of formal declarations made on the subject by individual bishops climaxed with the 1958 combined statement of all the bishops of the United States, ""Discrimination and the Christian Conscience"". Where the Church stands on this vital question is certainly clear. In the main section Mr. Senser devastatingly rebuts the most frequently advanced objections to proceeding toward racial justice. The issues of race and racism, Negroes moving into a neighborhood, property values, interracial marriage, the government's role are all treated. Out of his years of experience the author ends his ""primer"" with fifteen ""What You Can Do's"" for all men -- white and non-white. Mr. Senser has written more than a primer on interracial justice. It is an outline for Christian consciences to a way of living with men which is demanded of all.
