    BLACK LIVES, WHITE LIVES: Three Decades of Race Relations in America.

    Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, (1990.). Candid interviews with sixteen black Americans and twelve white Americans starting in 1968, with most interviewed again in 1979 and 1986. These interviews capture the racial tensions of the late 1960's and the changing perspectives of the 70's and 80's - some are encouraging; others are often angry or disillusioned accounts of failed promises, misunderstandings, and lost opportunities. This trade paperback edition includes two new essays by the author - 'The Author's Story' and 'Where Are the People Now.' Also includes an appendix with the methodology used, notes, and a bibliographic essay. 364 pp. ISBN: 0-520069501.
