This alternative perspective on the problem of American race relations takes sharp aim at issues of status, power, and political class. In his insightful exploration, political scientist Ronald Kuykendall argues that the racial problem is a political class conflict that must be resolved through revolutionary political class struggle. He adeptly unravels the complex interrelationships of status, political repression, and social stratification involved in American race issues. As the social crisis of race relations threatens to boil over in 21st century America, the content of this book is critical. Looking at the roots of the "race problem" as a power dynamic, what solutions—if any—seem possible? Can this crisis be resolved?


"Social Crisis and Social Demoralization is undoubtedly one of the better-informed examinations of the subject of so-called race relations written in recent years." —Black Star News
