A New York Times Notable Book of the Year.

Going against conventional wisdom, Dalton asserts that blacks and whites need not live estranged, and offers concrete proposals for what individual blacks and whites must do to bring about racial healing. When discussing race, Dalton suggests that blacks and whites "should simply put everything on the table. Own up to the tension. Acknowledge the risks. When someone inevitably screws up, rather than beat a hasty retreat, we should seize the opportunity to deepen the dialogue." The unflinching honesty of Dalton's views will spark debate and controversy. His vision of a truly just, multicultural America provides a thought-provoking, hopeful view to add to the diversity of debate over race.
