Race Matters by Cornel West

In this essay collection, West, the director of Afro-American studies at Princeton and author of several books, addresses a number of issues of concern to Black Americans: the L.A. riots after the Rodney King verdict; Malcolm X; Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill; and Black street life. These topics are all timely yet timeless in that they represent the continuing struggle to include African Americans in mainstream American political, economic and social life without destroying their unique culture. The essays have the feel of a fine sermon, with thought-provoking ideas and new ways of looking at the same old problems. They can be quickly read yet take a long time to digest because of West's unique slant on life. Already well known in scholarly circles, he's increasingly becoming more visible to the general public. This book should make his essays more accessible to a greater number of people. —Library Journal
