ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
PRAISE PRAISE
Synopsis

Synopsis

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.
Praise

Praise

[A] compelling blend of philosophy, sociology and political commentary. . . . One can only applaud the ferocious moral vision and astute intellect on display in these pages. --Michiko Kakutani, 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." --David Nicholson, The Washington Post Book World

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

"Cornel West is one of the most authentic, brilliant, prophetic, and healing voices in America today. We ignore his truth in Race Matters at our personal and national peril." --Marian Wright Edelman
