The mention of Dervla Murphy's book the other day set me thinking about other constructive, non-pious works on the subject of race. I'll keep adding to this list as more come to mind, but here are a few to start, representing - I hope - different points on the spectrum. (I'm having trouble coming up with books published in the UK. Must try harder.)
An obvious one to begin with: "The Content of Our Character" by Shelby Steele. An essential guide to the post-Civil Rights era. Shelby e-mailed the other day to say that he's finished work on his latest manuscript. Can't wait.
John McWhorter, "Losing The Race"
Robert Sam Anson, "Best Intentions: The Education and Killing of Edmund Perry"
Victor Davis Hanson, "Mexifornia: A State of Becoming"
Bruce Perry, "Malcolm: The Life of a Man Who Changed Black America"
Thomas Sowell, "A Personal Odyssey"
Jonathan Kaufman, "Broken Alliance: The Turbulent Times Between Blacks and Jews in America"
Hugh Pearson: "The Shadow of the Panther: Huey Newton and the Price of Black Power in America"
To be continued....
