Fourteen scholars and experts on race and ethnicity reveal how race and ethnic differences have shaped America's cultural, historical, and political landscape. Each contributor examines the impact of racial differences on American society, from religion and politics to Southern history and sociobiology, and explains why biological racial differences are neither myth nor social invention, but significantly shape virtually every aspect of America's political, social, economic and cultural landscape. Race and the American Prospect punctures several "politically correct" myths about race. It refutes in meticulous detail the prevailing fallacies of racial egalitarian orthodoxy. The authors explore a range of important issues in which race is consistently absent in conventional parlance, topics such as differences in IQ, personality, temperament, violent crime rates, immigration patterns, demographic population trends, economic disparities, and the long-term national implications of uncontrolled multiculturalism and diversity. Edited by the late Sam Francis, award-winning national commentator, Race and the American Prospect sparkles with incisive, readable, original essays. Courageous, controversial, and provocatively thoughtful, Race and the American Prospect is the book for every American, Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal, interested in vindicating our country's past, reclaiming its present, and securing its future.
