From the Publisher:

In 1970 James Baldwin and Margaret Mead met for an extraordinary seven-and-a-half-hour discussion about race and society. Mead brought her knowledge of racism as practiced in remote societies around the world. Baldwin brought his personal experience with the legacy of black American history. They talked with candor, passion, rage, and brilliance, and their discussion became this unique volume. Here is Baldwin's creativity and fire. Here is Mead's scholarship and reason. And here, for all to see, are their prejudices, their pain, and finally, their shared desire to find the thread that binds us all.

"This book. . .traces a curve beginning in formal statements, moving through wary affection and intellectual intimacy, ending with a raw confrontation."--Newsweek.

"Margaret Mead and James Baldwin are no ordinary people. . .their conversation. . .takes us along to places to which we could not otherwise go."--The Times Literary Supplement (London)
