Editorial Reviews


"Hemmons offers a detailed, macro and micro examination of the mutually reciprocal functions and interdependent relationships of social institutions (politics, economy, education, social services, family, health, and criminal justice) detrimental to black women in the US under the 'New World Order.' She provides a view of the multidimension disadvantage, through institutionalized racism and sexism, that black women disproportionately face. The macro-level data is very insightful, especially when presented with comparative data for black men and white women and men. Other strengths include discussion of the often unacknowledged advantages that the privileged receive ('legacies' in colleges and universities, Social Security income, 'standardized' tests for educational placement) and the extensive use of court cases to illustrate how the status quo is maintained. . . . This book is disheartening because, Hemmons notes, as 'minorities' become more numerous in society and as the economy continues to be based on service occupations (i.e., low-pay, low-skill, part-time work with few benefits), the institutionalized suppression of black women will intensify." - Choice
