An annotated bibliography of more than 700 significant works concerning the function of race in American history. It evaluates the most important historical, sociological, and psychological studies published since 1944. An introductory chapter describes and evaluates key general works on the origin and meaning of race and race relations.

After the introduction, chapters are arranged in chronological order. All consequential studies of slavery on the national, state, and local level are included with a brief synthesis of the major findings of the study. The book continues through the Civil War, the Reconstruction, segregation and Jim Crow, up to and including the ongoing Civil Rights movement begun in the late 1950s. A final chapter includes works that attempt to imagine the cost―economically, socially, and politically―of black/white racism and discrimination in the United States.
