About the author (1996)

Ellis Jonathan Cose is a black American newswriter whose public policy pieces won the Newswriting Award from Illinois United Press International in 1973, the Stock-o-Type Award from the Chicago Newspaper Guild in 1975, and Lincoln University National Unity Award for Best Political Reporting in 1975 and 1977. Cose was born February 20, 1951, and grew up on the west side of Chicago. He began writing his first column at age nineteen for the Chicago Sun-Times while earning a B.A. from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Cose was assigned to cover Jimmy Carter's 1976 presidential campaign. Cose sees writing as a way to bridge racial and cultural differences. His Energy and the Urban Crisis, as well as other books, discuss the effect energy issues have on the poor. In A Nation of Strangers, published in 1992, Cose discusses immigration and prejudice in U.S. history. Cose is also author of Employment and Journalism. He challenges the sociological notion that racism most strongly effects the under class. Cose has long worked in the public sector, and in California headed the Institute for Journalism Education.
