Solidarity blues : race, culture, and the American left

Iton, Richard. (Author).

Summary: The author argues that the failure of the American Left lies in its inability to come to grips with the centrality of race in the American experience. Placing the history of the Left in a comparative context, he broadens our definition of the Left to include public policy and popular culture.
