American life is filled with talk of progress and equality, especially when the issue is that of race.

"[An] unflinching portrait of the leviathan of American race relations.... This important book should be read by all who aspire to create a more perfect union." - Publishers Weekly, starred review; "Could it be that our unswerving belief in the power of our core values to produce racial equality is nothing but a comforting myth? That is the main argument put forth by Philip Klinkner and Rogers Smith... The Unsteady March is disturbing because it calls into question our cherished national belief and does so convincingly.... [It] is beautifully written, and the social history it provides is illuminating and penetrating." - Aldon Morris, American Journal of Sociology
