About this product
- DescriptionThe African American population in the United States has always been seen as a single entity: a Black America with unified interests and needs. In his groundbreaking book, <i>Disintegration</i>, Pulitzer-Prize winning columnist Eugene Robinson argues that over decades of desegregation, affirmative action, and immigration, the concept of Black America has shattered. Instead of one black America, w there are four: a Mainstream middle-class majority with a full ownership stake in American society; a large, Abandoned mirity with less hope of escaping poverty and dysfunction than at any time since Reconstruction s crushing end; a small Transcendent elite with such ermous wealth, power, and influence that even white folks have to genuflect; and two newly Emergent groups individuals of mixed-race heritage and communities of recent black immigrants that make us wonder what black is even supposed to mean.
- Author Biography<b>EUGENE ROBINSON</b> joined the <i>Washington Post</i> in 1980, where he has served as London bureau chief, foreign editor, and, currently, associate editor and columnist. He was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard, and in 2009, Robinson was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary. <i>Disintegration</i> is his third book.
