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's groundbreaking research analyzes wealth - total assets and debts rather than income alone - to uncover deep and persistent racial inequality in America, and they show how public policies have failed to redress the problem.

First published in 1995, Black Wealth / White Wealth is considered a classic exploration of race and inequality. It provided, for the first time, systematic empirical evidence that explained the racial inequality gap between blacks and whites. The Tenth Anniversary edition contains two entirely new and substantive chapters. These chapters look at the continuing issues of wealth and inequality in America and the new policies that have been launched in the past ten years. Some have been progressive while others only recreate inequality - for example the proposal to eliminate the estate tax.

Compelling and also informative, Black Wealth / White Wealth is not just pioneering research. It is also a powerful counterpoint to arguments against affirmative action and a direct challenge to current social welfare policies that are tilted towards the wealthy.

Wealth is measured by net worth (. A recent estimate is that the median wealth of White households is 18 times that of Hispanic households and 20 times that of Black households (Pew Hispanic Center, 2011). A recent estimate is that approximately a third of Black (35%) and Hispanic (31%) families had zero or negative net worth in 2009, compared with only 15% of White families (Pew Hispanic Center, 2011).

The book was exactly what I was looking for, and it was in excellent shape ! I was particularly pleased that the authors had been in school together,and formed a solid working relationship, over time.

The reading reminded me of my --great-great-grandparents, great-grandparents, grandparents and my present family who fought the good fight to become recognized as citizens of this great country despite the unjust policies, both legal and illegal, lining their path and that of my current family. The book's contents have been placed as a must-read for my grandchildren.. Our family history has put all of it in its proper order with historical events lining the path hopefully to a promising future. Through it all we clung to the Hope perched on their shoulders as they walked into their sunset.
