              Postcolonial novelists such as Salman Rushdie and V.S. Naipaul are widely celebrated, yet the achievements of postcolonial poets have been strangely neglected. This work argues that postcolonial poets have also dramatically expanded the atlas of literature in English.

              The Declining Significance of Race: Blacks and Changing American Institutions

              The Declining Significance of Race: Blacks and Changing American Institutions (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)

              By Wilson, William Julius

              This new paperback edition includes a major new essay in which William Julius Wilson not only reflects on the debate surrounding his book, but also presents a provocative discussion of race, class, and social policy. Wilson has written a profound and provocative book that is dest...ined to become a classic in the field. He has articulated the issues with which future researchers will have to deal. Truly, he has made a contribution to social science. --Wilson Record, American Journal of Sociology The intellectual strength of this book lies in his capacity to integrate disparate findings from historical studies, social theory and research on contemporary trends into a complex and original synthesis that challenges widespread assumptions about the cause of black disadvantage and the way to remove it. --Paul Starr, New York Times Book Review This is a short but important book. . . . Wilson presents a cogent and convincing interpretation of how the changing political and economic structure of the United States profoundly affected the position of black Americans. --Pierre van den Berghe, Sociology and Social Research This publication is easily one of the most erudite and sober diagnoses of the American black situation. Students of race relations and anybody in a policy-making position cannot afford to bypass this study. --Ernest Manheim, Sociology
