About the Author:

Jared Taylor born in Japan, where he lived until age sixteen. He received a BA in Philosophy from Yale University in 1973 and an MA in international economics from the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris in 1978. He is the editor of American Renaissance and the author of the following books:

Shadows of the Rising Sun: A Critical View of the Japanese Miracle (William Morrow & Co., 1983, 336 pp.)

The Tyranny of the New and Other Essays (Kinseido Publishing, Tokyo, 1992, 89pp.)

The Real American Dilemma, Editor (New Century Books, 1998, 144 pp.)

A Race Against Time: Racial Heresies for the 21st Century (New Century Books, 2003, 347 pp.)

From Publishers Weekly:

Arguing that white racism is more an excuse for black failure than an explanation, Taylor ( Shadows of the Rising Sun: A Critical View of the Japanese Miracle ) challenges racial orthodoxies, but with very limited success. Ranging through studies and press accounts, Taylor effectively catalogues numerous black excesses in the name of solidarity (such as jurors' defenses of former D.C. mayor Marion Barry, ultimately convicted of one charge--possession of cocaine--of 14 brought against him); he notes that blacks commit far more interracial violent crimes than whites do; he criticizes "race-norming" in employment tests; and he dissects studies concluding that police are more likely to shoot blacks (instances of shootings, he argues, are in fact proportionate to arrests for violent crime). But Taylor, who is white, too easily dismisses the notion of institutional racism; he simplistically argues that Asian achievements prove that American racism is not so great an obstacle to success; and he can't understand the role of black-only organizations. Arguing that the problem of the underclass is mainly a moral one, Taylor disregards economics. Instead, he calls for get-tough police practices, favors mandatory, no-appeal death sentences for drug dealers and suggests that to combat "reckless procreation" the government should require female welfare recipients to use the contraceptive Norplant. His blurred distinctions between the "underclass" and blacks reveal his biases.
