The choice: the issue of Black survival in America
Originally published in 1971, this award-winning book is now a classic in political non-fiction, used on scores of college & university campuses in such diverse areas as political science, economics, education, history, psychology & even in literature. Unprecedented documentation includes the erosion of basic human rights in a socio-economically ailing society & highly-placed attempts to liquidate an historical victim--the African-American. This book is a work of rare courage & intellectual discipline by a seasoned journalist. The Village Voice: "Samuel F. Yette has written not only about Black Survival in America, but also about the chances for survival of the most fundamental liberties of everyone in this country. To say that this is a vital book is to understate the case." The Dayton Daily News: "All of us should read it carefully as a warning & a challenge to all men of decency." The El Paso Herald Post: "Yette keeps his prose objective, his facts documented...Dreadful clarity." Playboy: "...disturbingly credible." Library Journal: "The evidence...is quite sound & convincing...An important book for both its viewpoint & its controversial thesis; most libraries will want to have it available on their current issues shelves."
