9780385424332: Sex and Racism in America

As remarkably and chillingly pertinent today as when it was first published in 1965, this now classic study dissects the intersecting myths of sex and race as they are played out in America.  No one concerned with issues of race relations in the United States can overlook the conclusions of this book.

From the Back Cover:

"Indispensable...[written with] creditable research, professional integrity, and considerable good humor."

-- Eugene Genovese, New York Review of Books

"One of the most brutally frank and impressively realistic volumes that has ever been written in its field. It is at once bold and restrained." -- Christian Herald

"It is impossible not to praise Sex and Racism in America. For of the pyramids of books...about this fatal problem -- the most divisive in the world today -- this is one of the few that tell it as it is, if you can take it." -- London Sunday Telegraph

"A provocative, wide-ranging confrontation of the sexual nightmares that give rise to fears and prejudices between white and black." -- Playboy

"Explores the myths which have grown up in the minds of both black and white about the sexual proclivities of their opposites ... It is a dignified and convincing report."

-- London Sunday Times
