About-

The first book to examine the full range of black life from the vantage point of psychiatry, this widely-acclaimed work has established itself as the classic statement of the desperation, conflicts, and anger of black life in America. 'Black Rage' tells of the insidious effects of the heritage of slavery; desribes love, marriage, and the family; addresses the sexual myths and fears of both blacks and whites; chronicles how schools fail the black child; examines mental illness among black people and the psychic stresses engendered by discrimination; and, finally, focuses on the miasma of racial hatred that envelops this country, why it exists, and what will surely happen if it is not soon dispelled.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"No book I have read so convincingly portrays the condition of black America. Even the intensely personal disclosures of Richard Wright, James Baldwin, John A. Williams and other novelists do not have its impact.... Remarkable."
Thomas R. Frazier, 'Chicago Tribune Book World'

"A book that takes account of the ambiguities in the psychological make-up of black people and, of course, all the rest of us. To their great credit they consistently refuse to strip the black man of his humanity."

Robert Coles, 'The New Republic'

"For whites the book [is] basic education.... To blacks who can read with coolness, [it] offers that hardest lesson of all: suspicion is justified, but paranoia is a disease."
