Description: Face to Face is a bold and compelling analysis of race in America. Waller challenges the myth that life is good for racial minorities by presenting extensive survey and demographic data articulating the continuing, and pronounced, existence of racial disparities.

The author disputes the idea that racism is in decline by contrasting "old-fashioned" racism to socially acceptable forms of everyday "modern" racism. Waller then addresses the notion that America can become a color-blind society by contending that the tendency toward prejudice is inherent in the ways our minds work and respond to each other.

The author concludes with 7 important principles for racial reconciliation that offer hope for racial diversity in our communities, organizations, schools, and families: become a good reconclier and listener; teach yourself to think; know your own heritage and prejudices; open your mind to appreciate racial diversity; engage racial diversity on a personal level; draw on the strength of community; and invest in our future by teaching antiracism to the young.

Face to Face is an unforgettable book that will challenge the way you look at a fundamental issue in American society.
