The End of Equality
This inspiring book shows that the great unfinished business of American liberalism is not to equalize money but to limit the spheres in which money matters--to put money in its place."Provocative...bold...moving...A valuable contribution to the continuing debate on race and class in America."--J. Anthony Lukas, "New York Times Book Review (front page)"
