More than Just Race
Being Black and Poor in the Inner City
William Julius Wilson

William Julius Wilson applies a new analytic framework to three politically fraught social problems: the persistence of the innercity ghetto, the plight of low-skilled black males and the fragmentation of the African American family. Though the discussion of racial inequality is typically polarised, Wilson reaches the controversial conclusion that structural and cultural forces are inextricably linked and that public policy can change the status quo only by reforming the institutions that reinforce it.

"...highly informative, carefully researched sociological tome...An excellent study."
