Book Review: Legal Restraints on Racial Discrimination in Employment, 34 University of Chicago Law Review 817 (1967)


Few domestic problems preoccupy the nation as much as the economic
status of the Negro community. The fact that it is relatively low-that
the Negro unemployment rate is substantially higher than the white
and that Negro income is relatively lower-is not disputed. And there
is substantial agreement that bettering the position of Negroes in the
labor market-both quantitatively and qualitatively-is a prerequisite
to an overall amelioration of their economic status. What means of
improving their position in the labor market are feasible or appropriate,
however, is not a matter on which there is general agreement.
