No description available, No description available, In this provocative contribution to the American discourse on race the newest book of the em Issues of Our Time em series edited by Henry Louis Gates Jr William Julius Wilson applies an exciting new analytic framework to three politically fraught social problems the persistence of the inner city ghetto the plight of low skilled black males and the fragmentation of the African American family Though the discussion of racial inequality is typically ideologically polarized conservatives emphasize cultural factors like worldviews and behaviors while liberals emphasize institutional forces Wilson dares to consider both institutional and cultural factors as causes of the persistence of racial inequality He reaches the controversial conclusion that while structural and cultural forces are inextricably linked public policy can change the racial status quo only by reforming the institutions that reinforce it This book will dramatically affect policy debates and challenge many of the leaders, The editor of this volume asserts that sociology s ostrich like stance threatens to leave the discipline in a position of irrelevance to the world at large and compromises the support of policymakers funders media and the public br br Wilson s vision is of a sociology attuned to the public agenda influencing public policy through both short and long range analysis from a sociological perspective Using a variety of policy issues perspectives methods and cases the distinguished contibutors to this volume both demonstrate and emphasize Wilson s ideas
