This book tells the story of how the transition to democracy in South Africa enfranchised blacks politically but without raising most of them from poverty. Although democratic South Africa is officially "non-racial," the book shows that racial solidarities continue to play a role in the country's political economy.

Philosopher Michael Levin has delivered one of the most authoritative and incisive treatises on the importance of race ever written. Why Race Matters is must reading for anyone interested in the debates on race, IQ, crime, welfare, affirmative action, and multiculturalism. Levin cross-examines the statistical data, psychological test scores, and behavioral genetic analyses, brilliantly illuminating the logical pitfalls and stumbling blocks in so much of what has been written on the subject. His powerful logic digs deep and his courageous inferences vault forward. Levin seems to be always bang on target. -- J. Philippe Rushton, University of Western OntarioProf. Michael Levin?s analytical tour de force differs uniquely from other books dealing with racial differences. Levin views the various complex arguments regarding the reality and nature of race and race differences, not from any of the typical specialized viewpoints of anthropology, education, evolution, genetics, psychology, or sociology, or from any social or political ideology, but from the sweeping vantage point of the philosophy of science. Levin?s impressive technical mastery of the subject is evinced in his book?s amazingly broad and detailed scope and analytical depth. But what I consider the most valuable and exciting feature of Levin?s treatment of every facet of the race issue is the consistent critical stance his incisive intellect brings to every aspect, based entirely on his keen understanding of the philosophy of science. It is definitely a ?must read? for all serious students of this subject.-- Arthur R. Jensen, U.C. BerkeleyWhy Race Matters does exactly what the title promises?it removes all illusions about the insignificance of race, and explains what racial differences mean for a multiracial society. It is a thorough, overwhelmingly convincing treatment of America?s most serious and least understood problem. -- Jared Taylor, editor, American Renaissance

The fundamental litmus test for American democracy-its economy, government, criminal justice system, education, mass media, and culture-remains: how broad and intense are the arbitrary powers used and deployed against black people. In this sense, the problem of the twenty-first century remains the problem of the color line. --from the new Preface First published in 1993 on the one-year anniversary of the L.A. riots, Race Matters was a national best-seller, and it has since become a groundbreaking classic on race in America. Race Matters contains West's most powerful essays on the issues relevant to black Americans today: despair, black conservatism, black-Jewish relations, myths about black sexuality, the crisis in leadership in the black community, and the legacy of Malcolm X. And the insights that he brings to these complicated problems remain fresh, exciting, creative, and compassionate. Now more than ever, Race Matters is a book for all Americans, as it helps us to build a genuine multiracial democracy in the new millennium. From the Hardcover edition.

Exploring the key legal issues in combating race discrimination, Race Matters provides readers with a detailed understanding of the issue of inequality. At its heart is an aim to increase the likelihood of achieving racial equality at both the national and international levels - in so doing it examines the primary role of legislation and its impact on the court process. It also discusses the two most important trade agreements of our day - the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union Treaty - in a historical and compelling analysis of racial discrimination. By providing a detailed examination of the relationship between race and the law, the book will be an important resource for those concerned with equality.

Explores the contexts of judges' decision making in juvenile courts that incarcerate disproportionately more minorities than whites. An in-depth examination of the contextual nature of decision making and the causes of disproportionate minority confinement in four relatively homogenous juvenile courts in Iowa, this book explores the subjective social psychological processes of juvenile court officers and the factors that influence those processes. Iowa, although a state with a predominantly white population, has one of the highest minority incarceration rates for juveniles. Michael J. Leiber focuses on the relationships between adherence to correctional orientations (such as retribution and rehabilitation) and decision-makers' views concerning race, crime, family, and respect for authority with judgments and differential outcomes for youth. Quantitative and qualitative methodologies are used to determine the extent to which correctional ideologies and decision-makers' stereotyping of minorities are fueled by a wide range of contingencies, the impact of case processing and outcomes of whites, African Americans, and Native Americans, and how it varies by jurisdiction. “…a must not only for researchers but also for policy makers and practitioners…” — Criminal Justice Review "This is a highly readable book that covers a topic of major importance in present-day society. As Leiber notes, the role of decision-makers' attitudes is an important, yet largely ignored variable and the qualitative portion of his study are an important contribution to the literature." — Randall G. Shelden, University of Nevada at Las Vegas

Three decades of literature reviews, meta-analyses, and program evaluations have shown that correctional rehabilitation can work. The most effective treatment approaches and techniques in correctional rehabilitation have been assembled into what is called the "Principles of Effective Intervention" (Andrews et al., 1990; Gendreau, 1996; Andrews & Bonta, 2003). Since there is indication that programs that follow the Principles of Effective Intervention are not as effective with non-Whites as they are with Whites (Van Voorhis et al., 2002; Robinson, 1995), this work asks whether racial responsivity should be considered an element of effective correctional treatment. This work is an extension of Van Voorhis and colleagues' (2002) Georgia Cognitive Skills Experiment, which found a significant reduction in recidivism for White but not African American parolees after participation in a correctional treatment program. The present study used an experimental design to assign 937 male parolees to a treatment group that received the Reasoning & Rehabilitation program or to a control group that did not receive the program. Two-way and three-way interactions were analyzed using discrete-time event history analysis. Personality, employment status at incarceration, the gender of the parole officer, adherence to program integrity, and assessed relevance of the treatment program were found to explain why the program was effective for Whites but not for African Americans. These findings supported the main argument in this work: Racial responsivity is an important facet of the Responsivity Principle. Since African American offenders continue to be disproportionately represented in correctional populations (Harrison & Beck, 2003), these findings support for the need for more research in the area of racial responsivity.
