    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.

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.
