Verso, November 1995. First Edition. Cloth. Used - Very Good / Very Good. Item #228847
The scourge of racism haunts the United States as persistently as it ever did. Life expectancy for black men is now below retirement age. Average black income is only 56 per cent of that earned by whites. In Washington DC, no less than 43 per cent of black men have been in prison or on parole, and this state of affairs is getting worse, not better. Black admissions to college education are falling, whilst admissions to prisons rise - blacks compise two-thirds of the US prison population while making up only 13 per cent of the entire population.
First edition in very good dust jacket. White cloth with black lettering. Black end pages. Clean, unmarked text. Very good+ overall.
