With the election of Barack Obama as the first black president of the United States, the issue of racial justice in America occupies center stage. Racial Justice in the Age of Obama (Princeton University Press) provides a new and nonpartisan way of thinking about the problem of race in contemporary American society. The book focuses on African Americans, but its method of analysis and over 100 statistical tables are relevant for other groups, including Latinos, Asians, women, and gays and lesbians.
