Marable teaches history and political science and directs the Institute for Research in African American Studies at Columbia University. He has also written a newspaper column, currently titled "Along the Color Line," for two decades; it appears in some 250 newspapers and runs on 75 U.S. and international radio stations. Marable's new book gathers and updates his 1991^-96 commentary, with sections on inequality and public policy, "Strong Black Women," education and African American youth, conservatism and racism in the '90s, trans-national perspectives on race and revolution, "The New Racism," black empowerment, multicultural America, and "The Struggle for Democratic Transformation." Marable has long been a thoughtful, progressive analyst of the ways race, class, and gender--our modern "peculiar institutions" --disempower most Americans and on the realities behind the rhetoric that defends the status quo. His essays here address issues of recent years, from NAFTA and Oklahoma City to O. J. Simpson and Louis Farrakhan, in the context of his commitment to larger concerns. Mary CarrollReview:
In the 1990s, Marable documents, new forms of racism shape the lives of people of color in more subtle ways than old forms. This survey of rising right wing ideologies and conservativism in modern society traces its impact upon the black community, presenting a pro-activist argument on the future of black liberation efforts. -- Midwest Book Review
