9780679749868: Race Matters

With a new introduction, the groundbreaking classic Race Matters affirms its position as the bestselling, most influential, and most original articulation of the urgent issues in America's ongoing racial debate.

Cornel West is at the forefront of thinking about race. In Race Matters he addresses a range of issues, from the crisis in black leadership and the myths surrounding black sexuality to affirmative action, the new black conservatism, and the strained relations between Jews and African Americans. He never hesitates to confront the prejudices of all his readers or wavers in his insistence that they share a common destiny. Bold in its thought and written with a redemptive passion grounded in the tradition of the African-American church, Race Matters is a book that is at once challenging and deeply healing.

From the Publisher:

" [A] compelling blend of philosphy, sociology and political commentary...It directly takes on some of the most volatile issues facing American society today...One can only applaud the ferocious moral vision and astute intellect on display in these pages."--The New York Times

"As moving as any of the sermons of the Rev. Martin Luther King, as profound as W.E.B. Du Bois's The Souls of Black Folk, as exhilarating in their offering of liberation as James Baldwin's early essays."--Washington Post Book World

"Exciting...illuminating..West's thinking consistently challenges the conventional wisdom..[and] confronts the reader with profound and unsettling insights." --Newsday

About the Author:

Cornel West has been Professor of Religion and Director of Afro-American Studies at Princeton University since 1988, and was recently appointed Professor of Afro-American Studies and the Philosophy of Religion at Harvard University.  He is the author of many books, including Keeping Faith, Prophetic Fragments, and, with bell hooks, Breaking Bread.
