Black Wealth White Wealth: A New Perspective on Racial Inequality - 1st Edition

The award-winning Black Wealth/White Wealth offers a powerful portrait of racial inequality based on an analysis of private wealth. Melvin Oliver and Thomas Shapiro analyze wealth-total assets and debts rather than income alone-to uncover deep and persistent racial inequality in America, and they show how public policies fail to redress the problem.

Compelling and informative, Black Wealth/White Wealth is pioneering research. It is a powerful counterpoint to arguments against affirmative action and a direct challenge to our present social welfare policies. 

Winner of the 1995 C. Wright Mills Award, established by the Society for the study of Social Problems. Named an Outstanding Book of 1996 by the Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Human Rights in North America.
