The Changing Mood in America. Eroding Commitment?
Jones, Faustine Childress; And Others
This book examines the current social climate in the United States to determine whether there is an eroding social commitment to equal opportunity for blacks and other minorities and the poor. It is concluded that there is a changing mood in the dominant society, in the black population, and in all three branches of the federal government, and it is shown how the changes occurred. Discussed also is the effect on educational policy and how the mood might be altered to a positive concern for American society and its undeprivileged groups. Specific emphasis is placed on social changes at the national level. (Author/MSE)
